The U.S. Navy has awarded positions on an eight-year, $2, 529, 500, 000 contract to five companies for work to produce and install shipboard networks that are intended as a bridge to the branch’s future afloat networks.
The Defense Department said Wednesday that the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract contains no options and awardees will compete for delivery orders to build the networks.
Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services will function as a single system for interoperable information exchange between users, applications and information technology platforms, the Pentagon said.
