SEWP General Information
    for Department Of Defense

Shay Assad, Director, Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy, said in an interview with Government Executive that when considering Interagency Contracts:
"I have been very clear to our employees that if an interagency provider, such as NASA's [Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement, or SEWP], or the Interior Department, or whatever is the most effective way to buy the goods and services, that's the way to go."

Memorandum of Agreement Between DoD and NASA SEWP

In November 2007, The Department of Defense (DoD) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with NASA regarding the use of the SEWP Contract. The memorandum recognizes the mutual agreement of the involved parties to work together as Federal partners and to demonstrate their commitment to achieve compliance with acquisition. In addition, the MOA establishes a framework for the relationship to support the mission of both agencies and to improve efficiencies and leverage resources and capabilities. In particular, the MOA establishes procedures for the use of the SEWP contract by DoD.

Obtaining Free SEWP Training

The DoD IG, in collaboration with the NASA IG, recently completed an audit of DoD procurements made through the NASA SEWP contract. The report includes recommendations on how DoD can best utilize this acquisition vehicle. The DoD IG recommends the Department take maximum advantage of the free on-site training offered by NASA and to routinely utilize SEWP's on-line RFQ tool. The Department concurs with these recommendations.
