U.S. Navy Awards Defense Contract to Esri

Redlands, California —Seaport-e, the U.S. Navy's electronic platform for acquiring support services, has awarded Esri a defense contract for its unique geographic information system (GIS) technology services. SeaPort-e provides a standardized, efficient means of soliciting services and support from businesses small and large. This indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract simplifies the acquisition process for the federal government by facilitating multiple task orders for customers without forcing companies to recompete. The SeaPort-e platform acquires support services in 22 functional areas and conducts rolling admissions to encourage small business participation. Nearly 85 percent of SeaPort-e's contract holders include small businesses. Esri collaborated with nine small business team members—Aerial Information Systems; APEX Expert Solutions LLC; Geographic Information Services, Inc.; Lynker Technologies, LLC; Metron Incorporated; Orca Maritime, Inc.; Punctuate Systems, Inc.; T3W Business Solutions; and VSolvit LLC—to participate in the contract. Each team member offers expertise that is complementary to Esri's support program. Esri is committed to supporting small businesses in their objectives to grow their federal footprint and, earlier this year, launched Federal Small Business Specialty, a partner program to enable that mission. Partnering with Esri, the global leader in GIS technology with a wide reach into federal government agencies, offers many opportunities for small businesses to provide consulting, implementation, and solutions to meet geospatial requirements and provide ArcGIS software related services. SeaPort-e will allow Esri to leverage small business partners' capabilities and also support their growth. "Our business model is to team up with Esri partners to serve U.S. Navy customers," says Esri navy account executive Curt Hammill. "Our goal is to make them both successful. SeaPort-e gives us a new vehicle to do that." Esri joins other awardees in providing support to the U.S. Navy across areas such as research and development, systems engineering, modeling and simulation, software engineering, and quality assurance.
