The U.S. Navy has announced plans to award Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) a contract extension to continue to provide information technology services under the service’s Next Generation Enterprise Network program.
A FedBizOpps notice posted Thursday says Naval Information Warfare Systems Command will extend for another six months the current contract’s end-user hardware portion, which will run between October 2019 and March 2020.
The network services part will be extended for another four to seven months, which will run from June 2020 or September 2020 through December 2020.
The proposed move would be in addition to contract extensions Perspecta received in September and November of last year to ensure the continuation of services as the Navy prepares to transition to the Next Generation Enterprise Network Recompete contract.
The Navy issued a request for proposals for NGEN-R’s services part in October 2018 a month after it released the solicitation for the contract’s end-user hardware category. Responses to the notice of intent are due Aug. 2.
