Seaport Enhanced (SeaPort-e)

Contract: N00178-14-D-7184

To meet Sea Power 21 objectives and to increase efficiency, the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Warfare Centers established the Seaport Enhanced (SeaPort-e) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle. This contract vehicle utilizes a web-based, e-business procurement portal, to facilitate performance-based service acquisition, leverage buying power, improve business intelligence, and reduce cycle time.

Averalink will provide services in response to task orders issued under this contract by the Naval Sea Systems Command, Naval Air Systems Command, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, Naval Supply Systems Command, Military Sealift Command, Naval Facilities Command, Strategic Systems Programs, and the United States Marine Corps, that potentially span the entire spectrum of mission areas supported by the activities and technical capabilities that comprise the various ordering offices. Additionally, activities may provide limited support under this contract to other U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), non-DoD, or joint agencies for work that is integrally related to product areas and mission.

The Averalink SeaPort-e Team

The Averalink world-class team consists of a diverse set of small businesses with unsurpassed breadth and depth to satisfy SeaPort-e contract requirements and meet the needs of clients. The team brings an established, highly integrated and proven management infrastructure to SeaPort-e. The Averalink team offers personnel, processes, technologies, locations, and resources already closely aligned with the Federal Government's challenges and needs.

3.1 Research and Development Support: This functional area consists of supporting the development and application of scientific and analytical disciplines to conduct fundamental research; scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing the state-of-the-art or increasing knowledge or understanding; concept formulation; assessment of system and subsystem requirements; development, analysis and evaluation of concepts, technologies, systems and subsystems; and development of operational concepts and tactics with the end goal being the application of results to developing new or improving existing warfighting capabilities. This effort may include manning, operating, and maintaining test support craft and experimental vessels in the open ocean or restricted waters to support tests.

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 and existing Naval capabilities and systems, technically support development of significant alterations to existing systems, support integration and interface of existing equipment or software into different applications or platforms to support the warfighter, and support evaluation of foreign or non-developmental systems, equipments, and technologies. This functional area also includes all support required within the area of environmental engineering of U. S. Navy weapon systems and base related infrastructure.

3.3 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.

3.4 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. Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solutions and product modifications (e.g., software tools, licensing, and associated hardware) which are incidental to the overall support service efforts are considered within the scope 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.

3.12 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, 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.

Quality Assurance

Averalink performs project quality control by monitoring specific project results to determine whether they comply with relevant quality standards and identify ways to eliminate unsatisfactory results. Project results include deliverables and project management results such as cost and schedule performance. Averalink’s PM reviews work performance information including technical performance measures, project deliverables completion status and any required corrective actions along with information from the project management plan. Based on the results, recommended corrective and preventive actions are developed and included in future QC plans. The QC plans address all QC requirements for each phase of work. A QC representative will conduct QC reviews as required with the field staff (including team subcontractors) and complete inspections and QC reports. QC also participates in program / project review meetings. Integration of QC into the planning stage and program reviews allows early identification of risks to the entire project team, and allows development of a mitigation plan rather than simply responding to immediate issues. Risk identification includes ensuring that skilled experienced personnel are assigned for specific tasks, qualified subcontractors are in place, and task specific plans are prepared and communicated to all project team members so that the goals and objectives are clearly understood. Averalink’s integration of quality practices into all phases of work allows ready implementation of innovative practices.
