PEC Announces Layoffs

PEC Solutions Inc., a Fairfax, Va., computer consulting firm that helps government agencies put their services online, said Sept. 17 it would furlough up to 7 percent of its billable work force.

The move is due to recent changes to the testing strategy and other schedules on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet program.

A PEC spokesman said Sept. 18 the number of affected workers in San Diego, Norfolk, Va., and the Washington area was not immediately known, in part because the company will try to reassign the employees before letting them go.

The company employed around 800 people as of late July, up from about 700 at the end of March.

PEC said it expects to return to originally planned staffing levels on the NMCI program early in 2002. The spokesman said a related announcement should be made in the first quarter of next year.

PEC is a member of the team led by Electronic Data Systems Corp., Plano, Texas, which is consolidating computer networks at Navy and Marine Corps bases under a single network for voice, video and data exchange.

At $6.9 billion, the NMCI is the largest federal information technology contract ever competitively awarded, PEC said. The contract is a five-year, fixed price contract with a three-year extension option. When the NMCI is completed, it will serve more than 400,000 sailors and Marines, PEC said.
