Perspecta has won a $787 million contract extension to continue operating the Navy Marine Corps Intranet for the Department of the Navy, the company announced.
Under the extension to the Next Generation Enterprise Network contract, Perspecta will continue providing services for the NMCI — the world’s largest intranet — through September 2019.
Without the extension, the NGEN contract would have expired Sept. 30.
“As a new company, Perspecta is bringing a fresh and innovative approach to NGEN. Sailors and Marines will see real benefits from our experienced team, coupled with new thinking and enhanced capabilities that only we know how to make work on NMCI,” said Mac Curtis, Perspecta president and CEO. “Perspecta is the best combination for what the Department of the Navy needs now: a pure-play government services provider with a mission mindset and the industry’s most experienced team at transitioning highly-complex, large-scale IT environments while maintaining secure and reliable network operations.”
Perspecta is a new company formed by the merger of the U.S. public sector business of DXC Technology, Vencore and KeyPoint Government Solutions.
Overall, the agency plans to transition to the next phase of competition for delivering NMCI enterprise services, known as the NGEN-R. The extension won by Perspecta aims to provide uninterrupted IT operations and network security services until contracts under NGEN-R are awarded. Another eight-month extension is also expected to be awarded.
