The Navy yesterday awarded Leidos a contract worth $7.7 billion for the services portion of the Next Generation Enterprise Network, concluding a two-part re-competition that provides the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet.
"This acquisition will provide the [Navy] with base network services that are currently provided under the Next Generation Enterprise Networks contract such as electronic software delivery, end user core build, endpoint detection, logistics management, network operations, security operations, service desk, transport and virtualization services," according to a Feb 5. Defense Department statement.
The deal with Leidos is one of two contracts the Navy competed to provide its 700,000-user intranet.
The other contract for end user hardware was awarded to HPI Federal, a subsidiary of HP, in October, Inside Defense reported.
Perspecta was the incumbent on the existing NMCI contract.
Lorraine Corcoran, a company spokeswoman, said Perspecta is "looking forward to a debrief from our Navy customer."
