The SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) multiple award contracts (MACs) were designed by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to provide professional support services to the Naval Undersea Warfare Centers in Newport, Keyport and Naval Surface Warfare Centers and their subordinate divisions in seven geographical zones. Under SeaPort-e task orders are competed by the Warfare Center that has the requirement in the applicable zone of performance.
The first SeaPort-e contracts were awarded in May 2004, and MRC is proud to have been selected as one of the original prime contractors for services in all Statement of Work (SOW) functional areas in four zones under Contract N00178-04-D-4083; and as a subcontractor on a number of other teams in all zones.
Since 2005, SeaPort-e has been expanded to add a 22nd functional area to the SOW, Public Affairs and Multimedia Support, and more importantly, to create a Navy Virtual SYSCOM (VS) composed of the following: NAVSEA, the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP), Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWARS), Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Military Sealift Command, Strategic Systems Programs, Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), as well as the U.S. Marine Corps. These SeaPort-e ordering activities also were given authority to obtain limited support from other DoD, non-DoD, or Joint agencies for work that is integrally related to missions under the contract.
As part of the VS expansion process existing SeaPort-e prime contract holders were offered the opportunity to add additional zones and/or functional areas to their contracts. As a result, MRC now is qualified to provide services in ALL 22 SOW functional areas in ALL 7 zones.
In May 2014, NAVSEA exercised the second award term option included in MRC’s basic SeaPort-e contract, N00178-04-D-4083, extending the ordering period until 4 April 2019.

MRC has current prime contractor experience supporting NUWC Newport, NUWC Keyport, and NSWC Corona. However, we realize that a contract the size and scope of SeaPort-e requires a team approach. During the 65 years that MRC has been a prime contractor for the U.S. Navy, we have developed sound business relationships with a number of other defense contractors supporting NAVSEA, and we are pleased to offer customers the services of these other outstanding firms as part of the MRC’s SeaPort-e Team.
