Naval Air Systems Command has issued a request for proposals for a contract vehicle designed to acquire contractor support services, according to an Oct. 23 Federal Business Opportunities notice.

NAVAIR is pursuing the new vehicle to partly fulfill needs the command previously acquired through Seaport-e, according to an Oct. 13 statement the AIR-2.0 competency office emailed to Inside the Navy. The statement also said this new vehicle may be "supplemented by other strategic sources and/or competitive processes."

The multiple-award contract for program management contractor support services is "designed to address the need for a full range of PM service requirements that integrate several professional services with the flexibility for all contract types and pricing at the task order level," according to the RFP.

The resulting NAVAIR-wide indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts will cover a range of "knowledge-based services," such as communications specialists, security analysts and network engineers.

Seaport-e, a Navy contracting vehicle established in 2001, is overseen by Naval Sea Systems Command but used widely by other commands.

Responses to this RFP are due Dec. 7.
