The Navy yesterday awarded HPI Federal, a subsidiary of HP, a $358 million contract to provide hardware for the Navy Marine Corps Intranet.

The hardware contract is one of two deals the Navy will award as part of the Next Generation Enterprise Network recompetition.

The second contract, for services management, is scheduled to be awarded in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020.

The end user hardware contract has a three-year base period and six one-year options, according to a Navy statement. If all options are exercised, the cumulative value of the contract would reach $1.4 billion.

Mac Curtis, president and chief executive of Perspecta, said in a statement his company looks "forward to working with HP and the Navy and Marine Corps to ensure the smooth and successful transition of this portion of the program." Perspecta is the incumbent on the existing NMCI contract but did not bid on this portion of the recompetition.

HPI Federal did not immediately return requests for comment.
