AF NETCENTS I Contract Going Up $1.45B, Ceiling Now $10.4B

The Air Force‘s electronic systems center plans to increase the value of the branch’s original Network-Centric Solutions contract by $1.45 billion, pushing the ceiling value to $10.45 billion, Nextgov reports.

According to Bob Brewin’s story, this action also extends the NETCENTS vehicle through September 2013.

Awardees include:

  • Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH)
  • General Dynamics (NYSE: GD)
  • Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS)
  • Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT)
  • Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC)

Equipment covered under NETCENTS includes switches, hubs, gateways, routers, firewalls, servers, tape drives, satellite terminals, microwave and Wi-Fi hardware and land mobile radios.

The Air Force previously increased the ceiling value by $950 million in June, going from the original $9 billion ceiling to close to $10 billion.

According to Brewin, the Air Force said it extended the vehicle to prevent disruptions in supplying standard hardware for the branch’s global networks and cyber programs as it addresses the follow-on NETCENTS 2 contract.

In June, the Air Force announced it was putting that potential $7 billion vehicle back up for bids after originally awarding the contract in April.

Francine Nix, an ESC contracting officer, told Nextgov evaluation notices for NETCENTS 2 should go to contractors next week.
