In a post Friday on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the Navy said it will instead release an update to its draft RFP on Dec. 19, with the final RFP not coming before the end of January.
The second draft will have revisions to sections that detail instructions, conditions and notices to offerors, as well as evaluations ratings for industry comment. It will also include a question-and-answer page.
“We are using the insight from all responses to further solidify the requirements and to ensure that we release a quality RFP that industry will be able to bid on and execute in order to provide enterprise network services to our sailors and Marines, ” said Navy Capt. Shawn Hendricks, NGEN program manager.
