Navy Issues Solicitation for NGEN Recompete’s End-User Hardware Portion

The U.S. Navy has released a solicitation for the potential nine-year, end-user hardware portion of the Next Generation Enterprise Network Recompete contract.

A FedBizOpps notice posted Monday says Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command plans to award a single indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for NGEN-R’s hardware portion that has a three-year base term and six option years.

The contract covers the delivery of hardware devices to the government for the use of classified secret internet protocol network router – SIPRNet – and unclassified non-secured internet protocol network router – NIPRNet – networks, according to the performance work statement.

Hardware systems such as desktop, laptop, tablet, ultra-small desktop, two-in-one detachables and thin/zero client devices may be either procured as a service or acquired.

Federal News Radio reported that Deltek estimates the hardware contract to be worth at least $250M over the nine-year period.

The request for proposals came two weeks after Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) received a potential one-year, $787.3M contract extension to continue to provide support for the Next Generation Enterprise Network program.

“Now that the NGEN-R competition is officially underway, Perspecta is ready to earn its position to lead the transition and modernization of the Department of the Navy’s largest [information technology] network,” Mac Curtis, Perspecta president and CEO, said in a statement.

The service will accept solicitation-related questions until Oct. 8 and proposals through Nov. 19, according to the notice.
