In the midst of equipping combat-ready naval forces and maintaining security in the air and at sea, the U.S. Navy has recently selected an additional 600 companies for a delivery/indefinite-quantity multiple award contract (MACS) under the Seaport Next Generation (SeaPort-NxG) IDIQ contract vehicle. SeaPort-NxG provides an efficient and effective means of contracting for professional support services and enhancing small business participation. Its makeup consists of companies that specialize in engineering support and program management support services. With immense gratitude, we are pleased to announce that IBEX has been awarded a Prime spot on the Seaport-NxG IDIQ contract vehicle under the general Small Business, 8(a), and Woman-Owned Small Business set-asides!

The contracts have a 2.5-year base period of performance with an additional five-year ordering period option.” These contracts were competitively procured via Beta.Sam.Gov (now Sam.Gov), with 620 offers received.
