Alion ST has won an $84.7 million contract to support the Naval Sea Systems (NAVSEA) Command Information Officer (CIO) by streamlining and enhancing key IT systems, including the NAVSEA Intranet. The Alion team will manage the NAVSEA Legacy applications and operations as they migrate to the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) program and the Navy Enterprise Resource Planning Tool. The team will also help NAVSEA define requirements and design standards for its forthcoming Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN).
Alion is leading NAVSEA’s consolidation of its public Web sites and transition to single-point hosting as well as migrating internal sites to a system built around Microsoft’s SharePoint software. Alion has provided IT consultation and services to NAVSEA since 2000.
Tim Keenan, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Strategic Operations Group said, “This contract helps NAVSEA combine a majority of its support services under one contractor, which improves technical efficiency, reduces costs, improves IT security and provides an enhanced integration of all NAVSEA enterprise IT functions and assets. Our goal is to assist NAVSEA in viewing information technology as a contributor to mission effectiveness versus a simple cost of doing business.”
