The U.S. Navy has released a solicitation for the potential nine-year, end-user hardware portion of theÂ 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-Râs 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 â SIPRNet â and unclassified non-secured internet protocol network router âÂ NIPRNet â 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 theÂ Next Generation Enterprise NetworkÂ program.
âNow 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 Navyâs largest [information technology] network,â 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.
