Program Office Involvement
Besides those individuals in the program office who develop the SeaPort purchase request, other individuals in the program office must be involved for the successful evaluation, award, and administration of a SeaPort task order.

Evaluators

Evaluators are those individuals who will evaluate the proposals once they are received. They should have expertise in one of the evaluated areas such as technical requirement or past performance. Contact a SeaPort contracting officer if you are not sure who should evaluate the proposals for the services being requested.

Financial Point of Contact

The financial point of contact is most likely the Business and Financial Manager (BFM) for the program/program office that is requesting the services. Contact a SeaPort contracting officer if you are not sure who is your financial point of contact for the services being requested.

Task Order Manager (TOM)

Similar to a Contracting Officer's Representative (COR), the Task Order Manager or TOM is the individual who acts as a procurement official through the preparation and definition of statement of work requirements and the evaluation of vendor proposals. The TOM provides front line, day-to-day monitoring of the task order during execution. Essential to the TOM is the maintenance of official files, including correspondence and past performance. The TOM is the only one who is able to create entries in the Task Order Evaluation within the SeaPort portal. Contact a SeaPort contracting officer if you are not sure who would serve as the TOM for the services that being requested.
