One more day for NGEN RFI

I guess I should read the Navy notice a bit more carefully.

They announced that they would be releasing a request for information for the follow-on to the $3.4 billion Navy Next Generation Network contract.

They said the RFI would be out “on or about Sept. 16,” and I read that to mean today. But it looks like "on or about" Sept. 16 is really Sept. 17. I think.

A Navy spokesman said the release is now scheduled for Thursday.

I’ll reserve comment on whether this early one-day delay bodes ill for the Navy’s chances of having the follow-on contract up and running by June 27, 2018, when the current contract with Hewlett-Packard expires.

Stay tuned. The release should be Thursday. Or not.
