SeaPort-e is the Navy’s electronic platform for acquiring support services in 22 functional areas including Engineering, Financial Management, and Program Management. This $5.3B IDIQ Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle allows The Navy Systems Commands (NAVSEA, NAVAIR, SPAWAR, NAVFAC, and NAVSUP), the Office of Naval Research, the United States Marine Corps, and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to compete their service requirements within a standardized portal and ensures an efficient means of soliciting offers from amongst the diverse population of large and small businesses and their approved team members.
All task orders are competitively solicited, awarded, and managed using the SeaPort-e platform; and since nearly 85% of its contract–holders are small businesses, SeaPort-e provides opportunities fueling job growth and enhancing small business participation.
Overview of Lynker Technologies’ Capabilities
As a prime vendor on Seaport-e, Lynker Technologies specializes in providing services supporting the following functional areas on contract N00178 15-D-8309:
3.2 – Engineering, System Engineering, and Process Engineering Support
This functional area consists of supporting the application of engineering disciplines to technically support development of new warfighting capabilities and systems, technically support development of significant alterations to existing systems, support integration of existing equipment or software into different applications or platforms to support the warfighter, and support evaluation of foreign or non-developmental weapons systems, equipments, and technologies to satisfy existing warfighting requirements. Support is required for system and process engineering disciplines that systematically consider the requirements, synthesize and evaluate alternative concepts, identify a recommended selection, and generate a design and system specification.
3.5 – System Design, Documentation, and Technical Data Support
This functional area involves the engineering effort required to prepare and assure that the detailed technical data documentation that is necessary to support system development reflects the latest design, configuration, integration, and installation concepts. Technical documentation may be in the form of paper, electronic (digital), or interactive computer systems.
3.6 – Software Engineering, Development, Programming, and Network Support
This functional area consists of applying the engineering and scientific disciplines to perform technical analysis of, technically support development of or selection of hardware and computer software, or modification to existing hardware and software for systems, test facilities, or training facilities. This also consists of software engineering efforts and programming support required to technically support software implementation in systems, sub-systems, and components utilizing computers, electronics, and software. Planning, designing, coding, testing, integrating, supporting, and delivering algorithms, software (source code and executables), computer programs are the inherent activities of this functional area. Generally, the software development processes used for software development under this contract shall be, as a minimum, assessed at Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) Level 3 or equivalent, however the Government may specify other (either lower or higher) standards in individual task orders issued under the contract.
3.11 – Quality Assurance (QA) Support
This functional area consists of applying engineering and analytical disciplines to ensure that the processes and products used in the design, development, fabrication, and manufacture of result in quality products.
3.12 – Information System (IS) Development, Information Assurance (IA), and Information Technology (IT) Support
This functional area consists of providing information system software analysis, requirements definition, design, development, test, modification, installation, implementation, quality assurance, training, and documentation to meet the evolving data storage and reporting needs of programs and management. Analyze existing IT and IS databases, web sites, and IT applications and recommend new or improved interfaces and improved management tools that meet new management requirements or improve management effectiveness and efficiency. Perform maintenance and technical support for Local Area Networks (LAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN) that are outside the cognizance of the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI). Modify, implement, and maintain web based information systems and links. Develop web-site structure, prepare documentation for population, and implement and maintain web sites. Provide systems engineering and technical support for establishment, test, upgrade, and operational support of systems, networks, workstations, and support equipment hardware and software that are outside the cognizance of NMCI. Conduct IA analyses, develop, recommend and implement, monitor, update, and maintain, IA practices, procedures, equipments, algorithms, and hardware that are outside the cognizance of NMCI.
3.20 – Program Support
This functional area consists of applying the business, financial management, and technical disciplines required to support planning, organizing, staffing, controlling, and leading team efforts in managing acquisition programs such that the result places a capable and supportable system in the hands of the warfighter when and where it is needed, and does so at an affordable price. This functional area represents an integration of a complex system of differing but related functional disciplines that must work together to achieve program goals through development, production, deployment, operations, support, and disposal.
