Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) has secured an eight-month, $486M contract modification to extend information technology support services under the Department of the Navy’s Next Generation Enterprise Network program.

Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command issued the modification to extend a previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract’s potential ordering period from Oct. 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020, the Defense Department said Friday.

“Perspecta is fully prepared to continue our work, combining fresh and innovative concepts with practical solutions to meet the evolving needs of Sailors and Marines who rely on the network to support their critical missions,” Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta, said in a statement released Monday.

“We are honored to serve the Department of the Navy, keeping the network operational and safe while setting the stage for IT modernization as they prepare for the transition to the follow-on contract,” added Curtis, a four-time Wash100 winner.

Under NGEN, the company helps manage the Navy Marine Corps Intranet that currently supports 700K uniformed and civilian personnel from both service branches.

Contract work take places across the U.S., Europe, Korea, Guam and Japan.
