NASA has named 41 more contract winners under its $20 billion Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement V government-wide procurement vehicle.
The agency said 41 contracts were awarded in the Server Support Devices/Multi-functional Devices, Group C. All the awards in the category, it said, are for firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts.
Agencies can order supplies or services from as little as $25 under the contract, NASA said.
Each contract will have an effective ordering period of 10 years, consisting of a five-year base from Nov. 1 to Oct. 31, 2019, and one five-year option to extend the period of performance through Oct. 31, 2024.
The agency began disclosing the SEWP V winners Oct. 1, but said additional announcements were in the works. The initial winners were included in two of four subcategories under the contract. NASA named winners of Group A for systems/servers and computer-based systems and for the Group D subcategory. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, which manages the SEWP V contract, said in a statement accompanying the announcement that it planned to announce Group B and C awards in the coming days.
