Protests against the Navy’s decision to award the $3.5 billion Next Generation Enterprise Network contract to Hewlett-Packard were filed by Harris Corp. and Computer Sciences Corp. on Monday, reported Washington Technology.
Harris and CSC led a team that competed against HP, the incumbent contractor on the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet, which NGEN will replace. Navy officials, however, emphasized that incumbency was not an advantage.
A Government Accountability Office official said that decisions are due Oct. 23. Until the protests are resolved, work cannot start on NGEN. The award was released on June 27.
