Leidos said today it will team with IBM, Unisys and Verizon Enterprise Solutions to compete for a part of the Navy's Next Generation Enterprise Network re-compete contract.

The team will pursue NGEN-R's service management, integration and transport program contract, according to a Leidos statement. That award is anticipated in December, Inside the Navy reported last year.

The NGEN contract provides the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet, which spans 2,500 locations and 700,000 users.

Separately, NGEN-R is slated to award an end-user hardware contract in November.

Meanwhile, DXC, the incumbent on the current NGEN contract, announced last week AT&T will join its team as it pursues NGEN-R.
