The Department of the Navy released a request for proposal (RFP) for its Next Generation Enterprise Network (N-GEN) Recompete program on Tuesday–the first of two major RFPs expected for the program. The new RFP covers the replacement of 400,000 pieces of IT hardware across 600,000 users. Deltek values the first RFP, which is for the end-user hardware portion of the contract, at $250 million. The second RFP, which will cover the services portion, has an estimated value of $3.5 billion. Under the first RFP, the Navy is looking to buy products such as laptops, desktops, tablets, and thin or zero-client devices. The Navy anticipates the RFP resulting in a single award, indefinite quantity indefinite delivery, with firm-fixed price and cost reimbursement type contract. Proposals are due Nov. 19.
