The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is gearing up to launch SEWP VI, the latest iteration of its highly successful Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) contract vehicle.

SEWP V is the largest GWAC in the federal Government by spending, with every federal agency utilizing its services. As of September 2022, SEWP V has awarded more than 200,000 individual task orders, totaling over $50 Billion in obligations. This trend shows no signs of slowing down as SEWP VI is projected to be bigger.

There were 212 bidders winning contracts under SEWP V with all but one winning at least one Task Order award. NASA does not plan to limit the number of SWEP VI awardees at the GWAC level.

While SEWP is often seen as a product contract, NASA procured a substantial amount of IT services through SEWP V. NASA has emphasized the importance of services at recent SWEP VI Reverse Industry Day presentations, so expect an increased focus on IT services for this contract.

SEWP VI will cover a wide range of products and services, including:

  1. Information Technology and Networking
    Computer hardware, tablets, network appliances (routers, modems, VOIP), storage, security
  2. Software and Cloud
    Software, virtualization, and Cloud Computing, XaaS (e.g., SaaS = Storage as a Service)
  3. Mobility and Communications
    Telecommunications devices and monthly service.
  4. Supporting Technology
    Scanners, printers, copiers, shredders, associated supplies and accessories, sensors, health IT.
  5. AV/Conferencing
    A/V equipment and accessories, TVs, Display Monitors, Projectors and Screens.
  6. Services
    Maintenance/ Warranty, Site Planning/ Installation, Product-Based Training, and Product-Based Engineering Services).

*Note the addition of cloud computing and cybersecurity products and services.
