HP is a global IT player that helps government deliver public value by enabling them to successfully achieve policy and mission outcomes, optimize costs and do more with less, as well as meet expectations for citizen service.
The company recently made major federal IT headlines when it was awarded the U.S. Department of the Navy’s (DON) Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN) contract, which is valued at $3.45 billion.
Over a decade ago, the Navy began a forward-leaning transformation of its many IT networks to an integrated and secure net-centric operations environment. HP drove much of these efforts and the contract actually expired in 2010.
With the award of the NGEN contract, the Navy and the HP-led incumbent team will now transition to a government-owned, contractor-operated environment while ensuring uninterrupted delivery of IT services to the many Sailors, Marines and civilians who use the network.
“For more than a decade, HP has operated the world’s largest and most secure purpose-built IT network for the Navy and Marine Corps,” said Marilyn Crouther, Senior Vice President and General Manager, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services in a recent press release. “We know the technology, we know what it takes to operate this massive and highly complex IT environment, and we now embrace the opportunity to help build a better enterprise network and continue the uninterrupted delivery of secure and reliable IT services while transitioning to NGEN.”
HP will be servicing this contract with its NGEN Alliance Partners, which include AT&T Government Solutions, IBM Global Business Services Federal, Lockheed Martin Services and Northrop Grumman Systems Corp.
