The CAI’s Seaport-e Team

The Center for Applied Innovation (CAI) is a certified SDVOSB honored to serve as the SeaPort-e Prime contractor.

The CAI has a SeaPort-e team of all Small Business that is made up of Small Businesses, VOSBs, SDVOSBs, Woman-Owned Small Businesses, HUBZone Small Business, and two Alaska Native American Corporations (ANAC). One of our ANACs is a certified 8(a) Collectively, the CAI Team provides a depth of experience and expertise that can support SeaPort-e functional areas second to none.

The CAI maximizes efficiency and control cost via an integrated management approach that utilizes the strengths of our various team members. 

Our team provides an unparalleled capability to provide solutions in multiple functional areas to include develop, prototype and move a hardware, software, or services solution including Test and Evaluation (T&E) to production or deliver complete non-material solutions within a single SeaPort-e SDVOSB-Led team. CAI personnel have demonstrated expertise in Federal, Service, Joint, and private sector supply chains. This ensures SeaPort-e end-user customers access to a certified supply chain solution via a SDVOSB-Led contracting mechanism. Our innovative design team specializes in finding affordable, supportable integrated COTS solutions. Highly qualified engineers work side-by-side with team and government subject matter experts to implement SeaPort-e customer designs and deploy problem-free systems and deliver services using recognized best practices. CAI core personnel are internationally recognized with global six sigma and other quality improvement awards as well as trademark holders for internationally recognized organizational, program, and quality improvement tools. Our team is specifically structured to: 1) increase geographic service availability across the zones; 2) leverage existing team member processes to maximize operational efficiencies; 3) minimize cost by reducing schedule and risk for task order delivery; and 4) rapidly build flexible and responsive teams to meet any challenge or requirement.

To provide SeaPort-e customers this capability, we have a history of successfully providing an experienced robust internal and external “reach-back” and innovative “reach across” capability among the entire team. In the unlikely event the on-site team requires additional or specialized capacity beyond their own, they can reach-back to their internal company “back offices” for support or “reach across” to other team members based on the depth of experience and capacity each of CAI’s Team members bring. The government gets the best solution regardless of source.

CAI’s program management concept for SeaPort-e is directed by CAI’ program manager for the effort. The PM will leverage team member resources including administrative, quality assurance, supply chain, contracts, and finance to efficiently manage task orders from solicitation to closeout.

Our web-based SeaPort-e applications allow CAI to delegate, integrate, and manage SeaPort-e tasks across the geographically-distributed locations for the effort. The application will be customized as required to ensure adequate communication and reporting of task order documentation and Q/A processes. It will further serve as a repository of information related to SeaPort-e RFTOP and task order awards.

For further information on CAI’s Capabilities, please refer to our SOLUTIONS page or contact us at any time.

Quality Assurance

The CAI Team is dedicated to providing the absolute best products and services to our customers and does so using a rigorous quality assurance process. We will ensure that activities are implemented and managed to best industry standards and for facilitating this performance-based contracting effort.  Our QA approach will result in predictable and measurable quality across all Task Orders to ensure the effective and efficient achievement of program goals as well as enabling the reuse of best practices so vital to SeaPort-e enterprise continuity.  Our QA will focus on both the tactical delivery of products and services while simultaneously maintaining the strategic goal of enterprise success.  Through the Program QA Plan, the QA Manager will ensure that each Task Order is governed by a specific Quality Control Plan which establishes our overall management philosophy, governing policies, requirements, and accountability for ensuring compliance with individual contract and Task Order requirements.  Our QA program includes:

It will be the responsibility of the Quality Control Manager to implement the Plan across all task orders through training and awareness with associated reporting and actions as appropriate. The plan includes scheduled and unscheduled monitoring, testing strategies, and other procedures to detect errors within services and products.  We conduct walkthroughs inspections, services and products reviews to identify trends and issues to prevent errors and to ensure appropriate traceability to requirements and agreements.  If appropriate to the task, surveys and peer review will also be implemented.  The Program Manager will assess all inspection and audit findings and trend analysis to ensure any discrepancies identified are corrected quickly.
