NMCI test results could boost seats to 149,000

NMCI test results could boost seats to 149,000

Navy-Marine Corps Intranet director Charles Munns met with senior Defense Department officials Friday to update them on the progress of contractor testing and evaluation.

Munns gave a verbal report to senior Defense officials. A written report will soon follow, according to his office.

When the Navy gets the green light from DOD, it can add 100,000 more seats to the NMCI portal environment. That decision is expected to come May 3, Navy officials said. Electronic Data Systems Corp., contractor for the $6.9 billion outsourcing deal, already has assumed responsibility for 49,000 seats.

NMCI will consolidate 200 networks into an intranet linking more than 400,000 sailors to the EDS-run intranet at sea and ashore.
