The Defense Department will release as early as Monday the request for proposals for converting its legacy systems to the Network Centric Enterprise Services program.
Encore II, which reportedly could be worth about $10 billion over 10 years for hardware, software and services, will provide lifecycle support to NCES capabilities and tweak the program's architecture, officials have said.
In a notice
posted today on FedBizOpps.gov, the Defense Information Systems Agency said it would post the final solicitation on or about Monday, with the expected due date for proposals. DISA said it expects to award the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts to vendors by May.
DISA issued the draft RFP
last December. The Encore II contracts would expand the capabilities of DISA's Defense Enterprise Information Services I and II contracts and earlier Encore contracts.
