The Navy has extended Hewlett-Packard Co.’s contract to keep operating the Navy Marine Corps Intranet by another $679.8 million and two months.

The contract is now worth $5.6 billion, and will expire in June 2014, though some portions will continue into 2015.
The Navy has picked Hewlett-Packard as the prime contractor on its Next Generation Enterprise Network contract worth $3.5 billion over five years.
HP Enterprise Services is the incumbent contractor on the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet, which NGEN replaces, but Navy officials emphasized that incumbency was not an advantage.
