Department of the Navy Support
One of TAPE’s business foci is sustaining and growing our work with the U.S. Department of the Navy. Currently, we support this client through four multiple award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (MA IDIQ) contracts.
SeaPort Next Generation
Seaport Next Generation is an electronic platform for Navy Systems Commands, the Office of Naval Research, Military Sealift Command, and the Marine Corps to obtain support services in areas such as engineering, financial management, and program management. TAPE competes with other awardees for work in 23 functional areas.
SPAWAR SSC Pacific
TAPE supports Booz Allen Hamilton on two MA IDIQ contracts for the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare System Command (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC) Pacific.
On one contract, Booz Allen and TAPE compete with two other awardees for shore platform integration and systems engineering work serving net-centric Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems. Besides SPAWAR SSC, the C4ISR clients could include Commander United States Pacific Fleet, Naval Expeditionary Combat Command, Commander Naval Installations Command, Program Executive Offices, Department of Homeland Security, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Customs and Border Protection.
On the other MA IDIQ, Booz Allen and TAPE compete with three other awardees for technical services to support the SPAWAR SSC Enterprise Communications and Networks Division. This work spans management, engineering, integrated logistics, interoperable communications, and homeland security operations support. The task orders may also serve the North Atlantic Treaty Organization; Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard; U.S. Transportation Command, U.S. Special Operations Command, U.S. Strategic Command Headquarters, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, National Security Agency, and the Department of Homeland Security.
TAPE supports WBB Consulting in providing professional management assistance for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV). Since 2013, WBB and TAPE have competed for task orders to facilitate warfighting, manpower, and business transformation initiatives for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare (N2/N6). DCNO N2/N6 carries out OPNAV responsibility related to information, command and control, networks, cyber, intelligence, space, electronic warfare, maritime domain awareness, information warfare, oceanography, and the environment.
In 2019, WBB and TAPE added program management support for military manpower personnel strength modeling and simulation for the DCNO for Manpower, Personnel, Education & Training (N1T). DCNO N1T finds and recruits people to serve, executes training pipelines that take young Sailors through their initial education and beyond, and ensures full manning of our ships, squadrons, and submarines.
Our first task order for DCNO N1T provides record administration and management services in support of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS)/Naval Personnel Command (NPC) Force Management (FM) in Millington, Tennessee. BUPERS/NPC FM is the primary and official manager of Navy military personnel records, providing complete and accurate personnel records and records-related information to authorized users throughout the Navy and other federal agencies. WBB’s and TAPE’s work includes supporting the:
- Process of receiving digital and hardcopy, document preparing, scanning, validation, and verification to place valid, authorized documents into the Official Military Personnel File
- Supporting the Personnel Tempo help desk; and,
- NPC Message Center by operating the U.S. Message Text Format Editor Program and other systems.
Global Combat Support System-Marine Corps (GCSS-MC)
In support of SPAWAR SSC Atlantic, TAPE provided logistics support for GCSS-MC in Charleston, SC. GCSS-MC serves the Marine Corps in its Logistics Modernization strategy. It forms the basis for logistics information for Marines Forces and involves human performance analyses, logistics planning, feasibility analyses, requirements determination, policy standards and procedures development, research studies, long-term reliability and maintainability, training, and consulting.
TAPE’s work included asset management (AM). We migrated the AM Database to a new server to better manage around 7,000 pieces of IT equipment. The new database enabled us to provide client-requested data reports in under an hour when they had previously taken several hours.
