The Navy's award of its long-awaited $6.9 billion Navy-Marine Corps Intranet contract last month signified a major information technology outsourcing shift for the service that chief information officers are recommending for other federal agencies.

The Navy's award of its long-awaited $6.9 billion Navy-Marine Corps Intranet contract last month signified a major information technology outsourcing shift for the service that chief information officers are recommending for other federal agencies.

Under the controversial five-year contract, Electronic Data Systems Corp. will develop and manage communications services and other information technology needs for the Navy and, eventually, the Marine Corps [GCN, Oct. 16, Page 1].

The goal is to create an end-to-end system for transmitting voice, video and data communications.

Work will begin in the Naval Air Systems Command, with EDS taking over NAVAIR's network, said Joseph R. Cipriano, the Navy program executive officer for information technology and IT enterprise acquisition manager.

' The NMCI contract has three one-year options. At least 35 percent of the work will go to subcontractors. Four companies will provide R&D for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence infrastructure engineering for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center under independent five-year contracts worth roughly $85.3 million.

The companies will do the work at the center's San Diego facility under indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts.

Anteon Corp. of Fairfax, Va., garnered a $15.2 million contract; Booz, Allen & Hamilton of McLean, Va., won a $21.8 million pact; Computer Sciences Corp. took a $24.6 million contract and Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego received a $23.7 million dollar deal.

System initiatives to be supported include the Joint Maritime Command Information System integration-evaluation, Global Command and Control System-Maritime Test and Evaluation, Defense Information Infrastructure-Common Operating Environment, and Joint Training and Simulation Center.

Initial work will involve systems engineering integration support for the many types of network components required by the Command and Intelligence Systems Division.

The Navy team will support fiber-optic and unshielded twisted-pair cabling as well as servers running Microsoft Windows NT and Novell NetWare, desktop systems running Windows 9x and NT 4.0, and routers and switches frm Cisco Systems Inc. of San Jose, Calif.

' Computron Software Inc. of Rutherford, N.J., has signed a $1.3 million contract with the Marine Corps Community Services to implement Computron's four e-Cellerator products, which include AXSDesk, TransAXS Procurement, TransAXS Vendor and AXSPoint Exchange. The software will manage business processes at 18 sites in the United States and Japan.

With this technology, the Corps' service will offer online product review, requisitioning and procurement. Customers can browse and search catalogs, receive online approval for purchase orders, track order status and create customized profiles, Computron officials said.

The service operates quality-of-life programs and services for Marines and their families. For more information, visit www.usmc-mccs.org.
