The Navy last week awarded Perspecta a contract modification potentially worth up to $485 million to further extend the existing Next Generation Enterprise Network contract, according to a Defense Department statement.
“This modification will add a new option period that will extend the potential ordering period by eight months from Oct. 1, 2019, through May 31, 2020,” the statement said.
The Navy awarded a contract extension to Perspecta in September. At that time, Mac Curtis, the company's chief executive, told analysts he anticipated the company would receive this contract modification.
The service is in the middle of a re-competition for NGEN, which provides the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet.
