TMC Design applies rigorous and repeatable engineering processes, reflected in our AS9100 and ISO 9001:2008 certifications and our assessed Level 3 Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) rating for development (with accreditation projection of August 2016), to support our DoD partners – we know and understand the operational dynamic, rigor, and mission-imperatives for this mission space.  TMC Design operates a DCAA audited and approved accounting system as well as a DCMA audited and approved purchasing system.  Both directly improve overall accounting/purchasing efficiencies while reducing overall performance costs and significantly reducing overall performance risk.

SeaPort-e

The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) procures over a half billion dollars of Professional Support Services (PSS) each year for its headquarters' Directorates, Program Executive Offices (PEOs), and field activities. In order to meet the Navy’s strategic sourcing wedge, NAVSEA committed to $250M in savings by procuring PSS more efficiently. Coupled with this need, the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) directed that 50% of all support services be procured using performance based contracting by the year 2005. Furthermore, NAVSEA had more than 450 separate PSS contracts supporting its requirements. Most of these efforts were not integrated from a Command perspective, utilized a multitude of different processes in which to procure the services, and did not leverage corporate buying habits or e-business to facilitate the processes.

NAVSEA established the Seaport Office to meet the NAVSEA strategic sourcing wedge and the OSD performance based contracting directive while bringing order to NAVSEA PSS acquisitions. The vision was to provide a faster, better, and cheaper means in which to procure PSS.

In June 2005, the U.S. Navy awarded a multiple-award contract to 503 contractors, under Seaport-e, with the ability to add/remove/”graduate” contractors over the life of the vehicle. This support service contract -- for all phases of weapon systems acquisition and life-cycle support -- includes the areas of research and development; prototyping; acquisitions logistics; modeling; test and evaluation trails; and engineering. The contract provides service support for the Naval Sea Systems Command, Naval Air Systems Command, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, Naval Supply Systems Command, Military Sealift Command, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Strategic Systems Programs and the United States Marine Corps.
