Naval Sea Systems Command’s (NAVSEA) procurement of Professional Support Services (PSS), worth more than $70 billion annually, was not integrated across Commands, used a multitude of different processes for procuring services, and did not leverage corporate buying habits or e-business. In addition, the services were predominantly procured via level of effort rather than performance-based terms causing greater expenditures that did not result in desired outcomes.
Octo is upgrading the SeaPort infrastructure and migrating modules from a legacy classic ASP platform to .NET. Octo updates SeaPort software and infrastructure; delivers enhancements to support emerging customer needs; and performs production system monitoring, security management, and operating system and patch maintenance.
Adoption of the SeaPort system has reduced acquisition cycle time by 50% and saved millions of dollars in acquisition-related costs for Navy PSS contracts. The newest version, SeaPort-NxG, will save more money, even as acquisitions grow.
