Knowesis has been given prime status by the US Department of the Navy for the Seaport Next Generation (Seaport-NxG) contract.

SeaPort-NxG is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle for procuring support services in 23 separate areas, including engineering, financial management, and programme management.

It is the US Navy’s electronic platform used to award and manage task orders.

The procurement portal improves efficiency, enhances business intelligence, and reduces buying cycle times.

Each MAC has a 2.5-year base period of performance, with an additional five-year ordering period option.

SeaPort-NxG provides these support services to the entire spectrum of mission areas and technical capabilities supported by the US Navy.

The multiple-award IDIQ contract has a potential value exceeding $50bn over a period of ten years.

Knowesis business development director John Broughton said: “This is exciting news for us at Knowesis.

“Our expertise in engineering and computational sciences, along with proficiency in program management, financial analysis, database management, strategic communication and public affairs, and more, make us the perfect partner to support Navy and Marine Corps SeaPort-NxG needs.”

Knowesis currently supports the US Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery by detecting and analysing the data that provides useful insight into the health readiness of sailors and marines.

Founded in 2007, Knowesis offers services in analytics and information management, planning and operations. It is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.

Besides Knowesis, Castellum subsidiary Corvus and Flour also recently secured a position on the SeaPort NxG MAC vehicle.

In January 2019, EM Key Solutions was selected as a prime contractor by the US Department of the Navy for the Seaport-NxG contract.
