Local Firm Helps 45 Companies win Navy Contract Awards
Iona Moon announced that it assisted 45 firms in winning prime contract awards under the Navy’s SeaPort-e 2012 Rolling Admission. The awards added 385 new prime contractors and increased the competitive pool of large and small businesses vying for task orders across 22 functional areas.
SeaPort-e is a $5.6 billion-dollar-per-year multiple award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (MAC IDIQ) contract vehicle for Navy and Marine Corps services. The full list of awarded companies is available at the Defense Department’s news website.
Recently, Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), the United States Marine Corps’ largest command, announced it would exclusively use SeaPort-e to procure services, in place of the in-house Commercial Enterprise Omnibus Support Services (CEOss) contract it has used for the past 10 years.
“MCSC’s move to SeaPort-e is a testament to the Navy’s commitment to this vehicle,” said Lee Moon, Iona Moon president. “The move is a double-edged sword for firms, however,” Moon added. “In addition to bringing flexibility and consistency to USMC acquisition, it introduces a huge new aspect of competition where previously there was very little.” With this year’s awards, SeaPort-e has nearly 3,000 prime contractors. CEOss had only 37.
Iona Moon conducts a “Boot Camp” to train new and existing SeaPort-e contract holders on the process of competing task orders under the contract. This year’s event will be held in Quantico on July 31.
Iona Moon, founded in 2004, is a management and business development consulting firm specializing in the defense industry. Iona Moon has won SeaPort-e prime contract awards for over 300 companies since 2005.
