Annette Friskopp, vice president and general manager of Specialty Printing Systems at HP, joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin for the details.
A day after releasing one half of the final NGEN RFP, the Navy releases a draft version of the other, saying it’s made several changes.
The Navy says it’s writing the next version of its Next Generation Enterprise Network contract so that it can offload email and other services to DISA’s forthcoming commercial offering for unified communications, whenever it becomes available.

Navy officials said Friday that a bid protest to the new Next Generation Enterprise Network contract played a part in once again delaying the transition away from the Navy Marine Corps Intranet, which has been outsourced to an outside vendor for more than a decade.
The Government Accountability Office upheld the Navy’s award to HP of its $3.5 billion Next Generation Enterprise Network contract after two losing bidders protested.
Without commenting on the reasons behind the protest, a team led by Computer Sciences Corporation challenged the Navy’s decision to award a multibillion dollar contract to operate IT networks to a competing team headed up by HP.
The Department of the Navy has announced it may spend up to $1.2 billion more for support of its Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI). In a Feb. 20 FedBizOpps posting, the Navy issued sole-source justification, detailing a notice of intent to increase the price of Hewlett-Packard’s continuity-of-service contract (CoSC). The notice also allows the Navy to extend the CoSC services from April 2014 through September 2014 to ensure the department can complete the transition to its Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN). However, that contract option would only be exercised if the NGEN transition is further delayed.
