The Navy has extended the deadline for companies to submit proposals to win work under the expected $4.5 billion Next Generation Enterprise Network contract.

The deadline is now Aug. 8 after previously landing on July 18.

The Navy could award all 34 services contained under the contract to one company or award them to separate contractors, according to FedScoop’s David Stegon.

The contract will house work to manage and modernize the computer network that houses the digital infrastructure for 900, 000 Navy personnel. Stegon says it is the second largest computer network in the world.

A Federal Business Opportunities post cited the recent weather in Washington and amendments to the request for proposal as reasons for the deadline extension.
