SEWP Contract Holders may be authorized to accept Government credit card orders directly as long as the purchase is under $100,000 and being made over the phone or through a website using a shopping cart/checkout ordering system. The Contract Holders will report all such orders to the NASA SEWP Program office for tracking purposes. There is no SEWP contractual limit on credit card orders -purchase card limits are based on the individual's own agency's limit.
Delivery Orders paid by creditcard, credit card orders placed via fax or e-mail and all orders over $100,000 must be routed through the SEWP BOWL and may not be sent directly to the Contract Holder. Currently all SEWP Contract Holders are authorized to accept Credit Card Orders.
The SEWP surcharge for all orders is a base of 0.5% with limits as noted below. The authorized scale is:
$0 - $2,000,000 ($2M)
$2,000,000 ($2M) on up
NASA SEWP reserves the right to adjust all surcharge rates as the SEWP BOWL budget so requires. These fees are effective Nov. 1, 2009, for all SEWP IV Delivery Orders.
In SEWP IV, Contract Holders have the option to either include the fee as part of the Product price or as a separate Line Item, referred to as the SEWP-Z CLIN. If the fee is part of the product price, the Contract Holder should note in their quote the value of the included fee and any orders over the $2,000,000 ($2M) cap should have a Credit CLIN equivalent to the fee amount over the cap limit.
Note that the NASA SEWP BOWL operates on a non-profit, self-contained Full Cost Accounting Budget. The fees are set solely to fund the services and staff provided by the NASA SEWP BOWL. Collection of excess fees will result in either an increase in services, a decrease in the fee structure or a combination of the two.
