Navy extends deadline for NGEN bids

The Navy has given an extension to contractors bidding on the $5.4 billion Next Generation Enterprise Network project, reports Washington Technology, a sister website of Defense Systems.

Bids were due July 18, but the Navy has moved the deadline back until Aug. 8 because of several amendments to the solicitation and severe weather in the Washington D.C. area that caused power outages, according to a posting.

The only bidders currently are a team led by HP Enterprise Services team and a team led by Harris and Computer Sciences Corp., the story said. The award is still scheduled for February 2013.
