Valued at approximately $3.45 bn over five years if all options are exercised, the contract covers a broad range of information technology (IT) services and support for more than 800,000 sailors, marines and civilians in the continental United States, Hawaii and Japan.

"With the award of the Next Generation Enterprise Network contract, HP is continuing its partnership with the US Navy," said Meg Whitman, HP president and chief executive officer.

HP and its team of world-class partners recognize the importance of keeping the Navy's backbone IT network secure, operational and moving forward for Sailors and Marines to support their operations added Whitman.

According to the Navy, the initial $3.21 bn indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), firm-fixed award fee contract for NGEN will continue through June 2018 if all options are exercised.

In 2000, the Navy began a forward-leaning transformation of its many IT networks to an integrated and secure net-centric operations environment. With the award of the NGEN contract, the Navy and the HP-led team will now transition to a government-owned, contractor-operated environment while ensuring uninterrupted delivery of IT services to the many Sailors, Marines and civilians who use the network.

"For more than a decade, HP has operated the world's largest and most secure purpose-built IT network for the Navy and Marine Corps," said Marilyn Crouther, senior vice president and general manager, US Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services.

"We know the technology, we know what it takes to operate this massive and highly complex IT environment, and we now embrace the opportunity to help build a better enterprise network and continue the uninterrupted delivery of secure and reliable IT services while transitioning to NGEN," commented Crouther.
