The US Navy has awarded a $656.86m contract modification to Perspecta to continue providing IT services under the Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN) contract.

The agreement is an extension to a previously awarded, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity NGEN contract.

Under the extension, Perspecta will continue to provide services for an additional four months. The potential ordering period has been extended from 1 June 2020 to 20 September 2020.

The contract also has three one-month options to further extend the ordering period to 27 December next year.

Perspecta president and CEO Mac Curtis said: “Through NGEN, the navy has long established itself as a technology leader among government agencies.

“We are proud of the innovative partnership we’ve built with them and look forward to putting bold new ideas to work in preparation for the next phase of the programme.”

Work under the contract will be performed throughout the US, Europe, Guam, Korea and Japan.

Under the NGEN programme, the company operates the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI). NMCI is a navy-wide IT services programme with 400,000 seats representing 700,000 navy and Marine Corps users.

The multi-year contract involves providing desktop, infrastructure, server and communications services at Navy and Marine Corps sites.

Perspecta secured an extension before the previous contract was due to expire on 26 June last year.

The contract modification is a sole-source acquisition. The Naval Information Warfare Systems Command is the contracting activity.

The navy’s NGEN-R is the follow-on to the NGEN contract.
