Seaport-e

Zurka Interactive is currently a prime contractor for Seaport-e on the National Capital Zone (2).


In 2002, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) promulgated Seapower 21, a framework for aligning, organizing and integrating the U.S. Navy to meet the wide variety of challenges that lay ahead. The CNO called upon the entire Navy to find ways to become more efficient and effective. To meet Seapower 21 objectives and to increase efficiency, the NAVSEA Warfare Centers established the Seaport Enhanced (Seaport-e) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle, using a web-based, e-business procurement portal to facilitate performance-based service acquisition, leverage buying power, improve business intelligence and reduce cycle time.


In October 2004, the Virtual SYSCOM Commanders expanded the ordering community of Seaport-e to include all Virtual SYSCOM activities and to use SeaPort-e across the Virtual SYSCOM. Additionally, other activities, including the Military Sealift Command, Strategic Systems Programs, Office of Naval Research, and the United States Marine Corps have chosen to use SeaPort-e.

Our team works closely with clients, soliciting feedback and making adjustments throughout our approach.
