The U.S. Department of the Navy is conducting market research into information technology operational services as it prepares to migrate a shore-based intranet system to the Next Generation Enterprise Network.
The Navy published a request for information Friday on the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command’s e-commerce website to gather ideas on a planned recompete of the NGEN acquisition vehicle that is scheduled to expire June 27, 2018.
“We are using the insight from all responses to further solidify the requirements and to ensure that we release a quality request for proposals that industry will be able to bid on and execute in order to provide optimized enterprise services to our sailors and marines, ” said Navy Capt. Michael Abreu, Naval Enterprise Networks program manager.
NGEN is the successor to the Navy Marine Corps Intranet to support more than 700, 000 military, civilian and contractor personnel worldwide.
