Contract History: NASA is currently on the 5th iteration of the SEWP contract. SEWP offers low prices (generally below GSA schedule prices), the lowest surcharge and the easiest and fastest ordering procedure using pre-competed contracts. As of October 1, 2020, the SEWP surcharge for all orders is a 0.34%. The fee is included in the price of all products and is not separately listed on quotes.

Awards for the current SEWP V contract were made in May of 2015, and the duration of the contract will run from May 1, 2015 to April 30, 2025. SEWP V is composed of 202 Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts to 148 prime contract holders, both manufacturers and resellers of IT equipment. The contracts were awarded in 5 contract Groups – 2 full and open and 3 set-aside competitions. Since all awards were multi-award contracts, Fair Opportunity (refer to FAR 16.505(b)) must be given to all contractors in one or more Groups.

As with all GWACs, SEWP operates according to FAR Part 16.505(b), which defines that unless an exception exists, fair opportunity must be provided to all the contract holders within a given contract group. The government buyer can only specify a vendor to guide the contracting office towards specific contract groups.

Delivery orders issued against the SEWP contracts are not subject to the Economy Act. FAR 17.500(b) states The Economy Act applies when more specific statutory authority does not exist. Examples of acquisitions to which the Economy Act does not apply (17.500(b)(2)include acquisitions using Government-wide acquisition contracts. The SEWP contracts are Government Wide Acquisition Contracts. The authority for the SEWP contracts is from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) , pursuant to Section 5112(e) of the Information Technology Management Reform Act (“Clinger-Cohen Act”), 40 U.S.C. 1412(e), which authorizes the Director of OMB to designate one or more heads of executive agencies as executive agents for government-wide acquisitions contracts for IT.

The SEWP Program Management Office provides detailed utilization reporting to government CIOs which is a tremendous benefit in helping them meet the requirements of the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA).
