The award increases the continuity of services contract’s value from $4, 924, 000, 000 to $5, 603, 792, 250 and includes one option to extend work from April 2014 to June 2014, the Defense Department said Monday.
HP will receive that option if the government has not transitioned services from the NMCI to the Next Generation Enterprise Network.
CoSC contracts work to continue NMCI IT services and performance levels until NGEN provides replacement services to the Navy and Marine Corps, the Pentagon says.
Network operation services under the CoSC contract are currently scheduled to expire in April 2014, asset usage services are set to end in December 2014 and hardware purchases are slated to stop in July 2015.
Work will occur at 2, 500 Navy and Marine Corps locations worldwide, including major bases and single-user sites, and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego is the contracting activity.
