The Contracting Department, NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center (FLC), Norfolk, VA, intends to negotiate a single award, firm fixed price (FFP) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for Navy networking environment shore modernization support (Solicitation Number: N0018915R0025). Due date for proposals is 10:00am EST on May 29.
Navy Information Dominance Forces (NAVIDFOR) is a readiness Type Commander (TYCOM) with the global responsibility of identifying, and submitting requirements for all Navy Information Dominance capabilities. The NAVIDFOR Shore Modernization and Integration Directorate (NAVIDFOR N46) was established to consolidate Man, Train and Equip-focused activities in support of Navy enterprise network integration; Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Collaboration, and Intelligence (C5I) shore modernization; Fleet strategic communications; and cyber security/portfolio management responsibilities for the domain.
NAVIDFOR N46 is the TYCOM lead for planning and executing information environment integration, consolidation, readiness reporting, and modernization efforts in support of Naval Networking Environment (NNE), Joint Information Environment (JIE), and Unified Capabilities (UC) initiatives.
The NNE strategy was established to guide the Department of Navy (DON) towards a future net-centric enterprise environment that will provide a highly secure and reliable enterprise-wide voice, video, and data network environment. The NNE will include the Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN), Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES), Marine Corps Enterprise Network (MCEN), and OCONUS Navy Enterprise Network (ONE-NET).
Transition to the NNE is critical to enabling the Navy’s cyber operations mission and providing warfighters with seamless connectivity and information sharing capabilities on a global, regional, and local scale. Additionally, achieving the target state NNE will serve as a key enabler to realizing the JIE.
JIE is a framework defining the capabilities required to provide a secure information environment across the Department of Defense (DOD). JIE will be comprised of a shared information technology (IT) infrastructure, enterprise services, and a single security architecture in order to achieve full spectrum superiority, improve mission effectiveness, increase security and realize IT efficiencies.
This acquisition is for the procurement of program management and technical services as required by NAVIDFOR N46 to support the preparation, alignment and transition of current Network Operations (NetOps) Man, Train and Equip capabilities and enact the NNE strategy. Additionally, the Performance Work Statement (PWS) has been cleared through the Intelligence Related Contracting Coordination Office (IRCCO) to contain TOP SECRET SCI provisions.
