GUAM – Computer Sciences Corporation of San Diego, California has been awarded a Department of Defense contract for up to $22.4 million to operate and maintain the Navy's enterprise network for the Far East Region. Support for Navy installations in Guam will account for 16 per cent of the contract work, or roughly up to $3.6 million. Navy/Marine installations in Japan represent 78 per cent of the work.
The award is a "firm-fixed-price cost reimbursable, other direct costs contract for support services for the operation, maintenance, support, and management of Outside-the-continental-U.S. Navy Enterprise Network (ONE-NET), Far East Region," the DoD said. ONE-NET, short for OCONUS (outside continental United States) Navy Enterprise Network, is similar to the Navy/Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), but provides users on shore installations overseas a single integrated network, according to a Navy website. The network is designed to provide secure and reliable data service to all military personnel.
The starting contract amount is for $11,199,981 and contains a six-month base period and six, one-month option periods which, if exercised, bring the total estimated value of the contract to $22,379,705. Work will be performed in Yokosuka, Japan (61 percent); Guam (16 percent); Atsugi, Japan (6 percent); Misawa, Japan (4 percent); Sasebo, Japan (4 percent); Korea (4 percent); Okinawa, Japan (3 percent); and Singapore (2 percent). Work is expected to be completed by March 2012.
