The NASA SEWP (Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement) GWAC (Government-Wide Acquisition Contract) provides the latest in Information Technology (IT) products for all Federal Agencies. The statutory authority allowing usage of the SEWP contracts by the entire Federal Government is NASA's designation as an Executive Agent by OMB based on the Information Technology Management Reform Act (ITMRA) of 1996, now the Clinger Cohen Act.

How to Buy
The internal ordering process of each agency varies. The process and accompanying forms for PR's and DO's that are issued against a SEWP contract is defined by the issuing agency and not the NASA SEWP Program Management Office (PMO). The typical process, however, is for an end-user to determine a requirement and generate a purchase request (PR). The PR along with any necessary funding information is sent to that Agency's procurement office which results in the issuance of a Delivery Order (DO). Any valid Federal Agency DO form and the associated delivery order number may be used. The NASA SEWP PMO does not issue DO's - these must be issued through the issuing Agency's procurement office. The SEWP Program Management Office (PMO) reviews, processes and tracks issued DOs and forwards them to the Contract Holder(s).
Some agencies have special requirements for issuing IT Delivery Orders. It is the Issuing Agency's Contracting Officers' (COs/KOs) responsibility to be aware of any agency-specific policies regarding issuing orders via an existing contract vehicle and Government Wide Acquisition Contracts. There are no requirements under the SEWP Contracts for issuing agencies to use other intermediary procurement offices, except as directed through their own internal policies.
Regardless of Agency-specific Ordering processes, the general flow for SEWP orders is:
If modifications are made to any order, these modifications must also route through the SEWP Program Management Office (PMO).
