The NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) contract was created in 1993 to provide NASA and other government agencies with a streamlined procurement process for technology products and services.

Prior to the creation of SEWP, NASA and other government agencies had to go through a lengthy and often complex process to acquire technology products and services. This process included identifying vendors, soliciting bids, evaluating proposals, and negotiating contracts, which could take months or even years to complete.

The SEWP contract was designed to simplify this process by providing a pre-approved list of vendors and pre-negotiated pricing for a wide range of technology products and services. This allowed government agencies to quickly and easily purchase the technology they needed without having to go through the traditional procurement process.

In addition to simplifying the procurement process, the SEWP contract also had the added benefit of promoting competition among vendors and driving down prices for government agencies. By offering a large and diverse pool of vendors, SEWP ensured that agencies had access to the best products and services at the most competitive prices.

Today, the NASA SEWP contract continues to be a valuable resource for government agencies looking to acquire technology products and services. With its pre-approved vendor list and pre-negotiated pricing, SEWP continues to provide a streamlined and cost-effective procurement process for agencies looking to acquire the technology they need to support their missions.
