Deloitte is Working on the Navy's NEST Payment System
Deloitte Consulting, Arlington, Virginia, is awarded a $27,160,067 modification to a previously awarded, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract issued by the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command, San Diego, California. This modification is to complete engineering changes to the order to payment system (OTPS), also known as NEST. The objective of this contract is to enable effective management of the current next generation enterprise network contracts, as well as to obtain the full range of systems engineering, software engineering, project management, integration and application sustainment services to assist and support the Navy’s program executive office digital to complete OPTS/NEST engineering changes. This modification adds the second increment of 12 months to this 43-month basic contract. Work will be performed in Arlington, Virginia, and is expected to be completed by January 2024 if all options are exercised. Fiscal 2021 operation and maintenance (Navy) funds in the amount of $4,787,240; and fiscal 2021 research, development, test and evaluation (Navy) funds in the amount of $1,685,566 will be applied to this contract after award. Obligated funds in the amount of $4,787,240 would have expired at the end of the current fiscal year if this award had not been made. The three option periods, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to an estimated $49,158,628. This contract was not competitively procured because it is a sole-source acquisition pursuant to the authority of 10 U.S. Code 2304(c)(1) — only one responsible source, Federal Acquisition Regulation subpart 6.302-1.
