US Navy awards Leidos NGEN-R contract
Leidos of Reston, VA announced on February 6 that it has been awarded a prime contract by the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR), formerly known as the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), to provide global network services under the Next Generation Enterprise Network Re-compete (NGEN-R) Service Management, Integration, & Transport (SMIT) contract.
The single award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, firm-fixed-price and cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a five-year base period of performance followed by three one-year option periods, and an approximate value of $7.7 billion. Work will be performed on a global scale, headquartered out of the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
Under the contract, Leidos will unify, operate, and maintain the shore-based networks and data management for the Department of the Navy’s (DON) Program Executive Office, Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) and the Naval Enterprise Network Program Office (PMW 205) to improve capability and service under one enterprise network construct. Key services to be provided include transport services, network operations, IT service management, user support services, and system engineering.
“Leidos is proud to provide sailors and marines around the world with the tools they need to gain a warfighting edge in the modern digital landscape,” said Gerry Fasano, Leidos Defense Group president. “Under the enterprise construct of NGEN-R, we look forward to unifying and fortifying existing networks while providing cost-efficiencies to the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.”
“A mighty force requires a mighty network, and our team stands ready to deliver just that,” said Dan Voce, senior vice president and Enterprise and Cyber Solutions operations manager for Leidos. “Our clear-cut past performance in network modernization and transformation enables us to deliver immediate and enduring value through NGEN-R.”
