The SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) multiple award contracts (MACs) were designed by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to provide professional support services in 22 functional areas to the Naval Undersea Warfare Centers in Newport and Keyport and the Naval Surface Warfare Centers and their subordinate divisions.
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 under Contract N00178-04-D-4083. Since its inception, MRC has been awarded over 50 SeaPort-e task orders for services a NUWC Newport, NUWC Keyport, and NSWC Corona.
In May 2014, NAVSEA exercised the second award term option included in MRC’s basic SeaPort-e contract to extend the ordering period until 4 April 2019. In December 2017, NAVSEA further extended the SeaPort-e ordering period through 31 December 2019. In December 2018, MRC was awarded SeaPort Next Generation (SeaPort NxG) multiple award contract N0017819D8089, which has an ordering period of five years from the effective date of award, 2 January 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 70-plus 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.
