SEWP Simplifies Buying Process for Small Government IT Orders [63106]
Insight, May 5th 2017

Buying a laptop, a printer, software or other IT items can be a daunting challenge for government employees.

Fortunately, there's a much easier process: NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP), a U.S. Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) authorized by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. Using a micro-purchase card for expenditures less than $3,500 simplifies buying because no bidding process is required. In many cases, it operates much like ordering from traditional online retailers.
