Defense Systems article “Network Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTSII) Done-Done in April’
Reporter Kimberly Johnson reports that a “top service official” stated that the much delayed NETCENTSII contract will be completed in April. The article goes on to quote Stephen Davis, Chief of the Enterprise Systems Branch of the Air Force Program Executive Office-Enterprise Information Systems (AFPEO-EIS) “We’re projecting awards for those beginning in April, with the last one in September of this year.” This latter statement is consistent with the last schedule release for the NETCENTSII program from December of this year.
We noted two themes weaved into the story (full text below). Mr. Davis is quoted as saying the NETCENTSII contract will make the Air Force more agile and Small Business friendly. Ms. Johnson did not question these statements.
We hope her opening paragraph statement comes true.
