AT&T Mobility L.L.C., Hanover, Maryland; Sprint-Nextel, Reston, Virginia; T-Mobile USA Incorporated, Bellevue, Washington; and Verizon Wireless, Laurel, Maryland, are each being awarded contract modifications to previously awarded indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, multiple award task order contracts supporting the Department of Navy (DoN) Wireless Services Program. This modification will increase the ceiling amount of the option period by $77,600,000 and will extend the option period by four months for each of the four contracts. This effort is necessary to enable DoN to meet its wireless service requirements due to an increased usage and influx of former Navy/Marine Corps Intranet contract users. These four contractors may compete for task orders under the terms and conditions of the awarded contract. NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center, San Diego, California, is the contracting activity.

Faithful Intranet Still Has a Few Good Miles Left

December 3, 2010
By Beverly Schaeffer

The Navy/Marine Corps Intranet ultimately is facing relegation to the cyberspace garage, with the sea services revving up their new NGEN for launch in 43 months. By going the multivendor route, rather than using a single vendor, NMCI/NGEN architects must adjust to multiple changes and procedures. They see no risks, but the current vendor does.
