Navy Eyes Network Modernization Through Three Other Transaction Authorities

1 min read

The U.S. Navy plans to award three other transaction authorities to modernize its ashore networks, Federal News Network reported Tuesday. The service intends to release three problem statements next week to advance the cloud-centric Modern Service Delivery concept to facilitate access to information technology capabilities for mobile and on-premises users. 

“We want to drive parity for access to services and systems and data, whether we are at work, at home or on the go,” Andrew Tash, technical director for the Navy’s program executive office for enterprise information systems, said at the Navy CIO’s San Diego conference. The Navy plans to issue the OTAs through the potential $100M Information Warfare Research Project vehicle introduced by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in the summer of 2018, according to the report.


Vendors should propose an “integrated suite” of identity management offerings under the first problem statement. The second problem statement will advance the network-as-a-service concept. The third statement will explore new technology platforms the Navy could use to handle users’ access to systems the service is migrating to commercial cloud environments, the report noted.
