In response to declining budgets, the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and its Warfare Centers, which are responsible for the acquisition of all U.S. Navy ships and shipboard systems, targeted a reduction in the cost of services for its headquarters Directorates, Program Executive Offices (PEOs), and field activities. As the first major step towards achieving this goal, NAVSEA embarked on a business process re-engineering effort to maximize the efficiency and economy of support service procurement.
This effort, collectively referred to as SeaPort, took a three pronged approach: 1) the award of multiple award contracts (MAC) with innovative contracting provisions, 2) the launch of a web based commercial e-procurement portal solution, and 3) the development of a web site, www.seaport.navy.mil, to serve as the entry point to portal. These three efforts converged on April 2, 2001, when NAVSEA awarded the multiple contracts and launched the market place and the web site.

Sustained superior performance is our quality benchmark
We continuously strive to meet even the most demanding customer expectations through the rigorous application of the highest standards of integrity, assertive teamwork, diligent professionalism, and dedicated service. The Celestar Quality Management System (CMS), based on International Organization of Standards (ISO) 9001:2008, is a top – leadership driven, process-based, quality program designed to ensure the company’s products meet or exceed the requirements of even the most demanding customers. The CMS employs a systems approach to manage the company’s interrelated processes in order to ensure effectiveness and efficiency. Celestar leadership employs the CMS to achieve the continual improvement of the organization’s overall performance, through rigorous process documentation and application, regular senior leadership management reviews, and factual decision making based on the capture and analysis of data. This enables Celestar to effectively monitor and maximize quality.
Celestar will use this systems-based approach to develop detailed schedules, staffing solutions, front end analysis, and to identify work activities required to successfully complete all Navy requirements. CMS processes, combined with regular leadership management reviews, will ensure early identification and effective resolution of issues, facilitate collection and tracking of metrics, and ensure effective program and project communication. Constant monitoring and reporting metric analysis and project status will be a cornerstone to contract planning and measuring our performance on all contract deliverables thus ensuring continuous improvement, and customer satisfaction. Continual process monitoring and metric based decision making are the key elements to Celestar’s risk planning, assessment, mitigation, and monitoring for all planning and coordination efforts. These elements enable us to manage critical project information and metrics, including cost, schedule, and quality metrics. We are applying in-depth risk management processes to ensure timely and compliant program execution, presenting a low-risk system.
