More NMCI seats coming

Electronic Data Systems Corp. will roll out another 150,000 seats under the Navy Marine Corps Intranet contract. The latest clearance by the Defense Department pushes the total authorization to 310,000 seats.

So far, EDS of Plano, Texas, and its team have moved about 60,000 seats to the NMCI environment. The increase in the number of authorized seats follows EDS' demonstration that it could meet the service-level agreements set in the eight-year, $6.9 billion contract.

"The results from four months of testing clearly demonstrated that the NMCI is ready to move to the next level," said Rear Adm. Charles Munns, director of the NMCI program.

Estimates for the full deployment of NMCI range from 360,000 to 410,000 seats, according to EDS spokesman Kevin Clarke.
