Air Force puts out request for $10b networking program

The Air Force has finally released a request for proposals for its $10 billion Network Centric Solutions program.

The all-encompassing Netcents RFP was released last Friday after several months of delay. The program will be a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity acquisition to provide a wide variety of IT products, solutions and services. Engineering, software development, integration, telephony, security, and voice, video and data communications will be included under the program.

The Air Force seeks to hire four large companies and three small companies as prime contractors. In addition to the Air Force, Netcents will also be open to the Defense Department and other federal agencies.

Air Force officials said the contract would satisfy the requirements for interoperability, compatibility, and resource sharing and would support the agency's Global Information Grid architecture.
