What services can’t you buy on SEWP?  

There are only two types of services you cannot get on SEWP V.

 Usage Of SEWP Contracts 

The SEWP contracts are for use by NASA, all Federal Agencies, including the Department of Defense, and approved support service Federal Agency contractors.

Training on how to use SEWP V 

SEWP provides a variety of free training methods — in-person, webinars, and online.  

SEWP offers customer training sessions for any Federal Agency that is interested in gaining additional knowledge on the SEWP contract. The training is free of charge. The free customer training sessions provide knowledge on the Program Management and Procurement aspects of the SEWP contracts. The sessions are useful for Procurement and Technical Personnel involved in purchasing, along with key Agency decision makers.  

Mandatory Training For DoD Customers  

The DoD requires employees to be trained in order to purchase through SEWP. The amount of training required varies based on the dollar amount of the delivery orders.  

Order Status Tool  

This tool allows customers to access the order status of their SEWP orders and saves time putting together help tickets, if needed. With this tool, the customer gets a list of all orders by them, or that references them with tracking and order numbers. 

Quote Request Tool 

The SEWP online Quote Request Tool (QRT) is the method recommended by the NASA SEWP Program Office for obtaining SEWP Quotes ( Use of this tool assists in providing and documenting Fair Opportunity and verifying and assuring items quoted are on contract and properly priced. You can also request status information, view order history and obtain copies of orders and related documentation such as the original Request for Quotes (RFQ), date awarded, current status, worth of order, delivery date, and a question and answer tool for contacting Contract Holders or SEWP only.   

How to get items added to SEWP contract 

Submit an official request through SEWP or directly contact NTS  

SEWP is a dynamic catalog where items are added based on customer requests. Therefore, as long as the item you require is within scope of the SEWP contracts, it can be added to the contracts quickly. Below are the recommended methods to have the product added:  

  • If you do not have a suggested source, for orders over the micro-purchase limit, typically under $10,000, it is recommended that the SEWP Quote Request Tool be used. If you are in the early stages of research and do not yet require any pricing, you can select RFI (Request for Information) as your request type. Then you can ask a question of the Contract Holders, such as “If an RFQ of the following type of requirement was submitted, would you be able to respond”; alternatively, you can go right to either the Market Research or RFQ (Request for Quote) request types and ask for either a preliminary or final quote. 
  • You can log into our Quote Request Tool by following this link:  
  • For orders under the micro-purchase limit, you can either use the SEWP Quote Request tool or contact one or more Contract Holders directly.
  • If you have a suggested source or sources and are looking for general availability information, you can contact that company directly.
