In 2002, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) promulgated Seapower 21. Seapower 21 provides a framework to align, organize and integrate the U.S. Navy to meet the wide variety of challenges that lie 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 formalized an agreement to expand the ordering community of Seaport-e to include all Virtual SYSCOM activities and to leverage the success of SeaPort-e in achieving the aforementioned objectives 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 Enhanced.

Quality Assurance Program
We know that a Quality Assurance approach does not exist in isolation, and one quality assurance structure does not fit all situations in a Department the size and scale of the Navy or other users of Seaport-e. Our quality lifecycle is adjusted based on the specific project, system, program, and/or other effort's needs. The first action we take with quality monitoring is to align and integrate our quality lifecycle to the project's methodology, embedding quality into the project or program rather than having it is a side activity.
We manage quality for each task order (TO) and across the TOs. When managing work on a vehicle as large as Seaport-e, we implement a QA framework at the overall contract level that defines the process and rigor that will be used across all task orders. This framework allows us to create a QA plan at the contract level that meets the needs of the Navy. Then using the contract QA plan, we establish QA plans for each TO. This forces a consistent approach to how we undertake QA across tasks orders, allowing for the standardization during start-up of each TO, continuity in managing how the QA processes are executed, a standard level of reporting from the beginning, and defined way to ensure quality through project lifecycle no matter the type of work.
Specific to a TO, CIDVER brings expertise for establishing and implementing QA and Quality Control (QC) for a variety of engineering, technology, and other customer task orders. Depending where in the lifecycle a project or program is, we will select the most applicable approach. For instance, if it is a new effort in the planning or start-up phase, we would help build the CM plan and follow it throughout the life of the effort. If the effort is in an engineering or maintenance phase, we might begin with a quality audit to determine what is working, what requires immediate attention, and what needs basic monitoring.
