The Navy and Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), which is second only to the Internet in size, was supposed to be a mechanism to transform and support the Navy and Marine Corps with an IT infrastructure that would move the Department of Navy into the 21st century of warfare. Its function was to enhance command and control initiatives of the Navy and Marine Corps by harnessing the power of an integrated network. The current state of NMCI, though marred by a decade filled with marginal successes and many setbacks, is very positive, boasting more than 700,000 users, and consisting of over 380,000 work stations in more than 3,000 locations dispersed over seven continents. In 2008, Department of Navy leadership decided to move on and embrace the Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN) guided by early transition activities (ETA) and continuity of services contract. The use of the ETAs was to successfully mitigate the risk while migrating services from a contractor-owned, contractor-operated model to one that gives the government increased command and control. The purpose of this research is to examine the effectiveness of ETA and concurrent contracts in mitigating the challenges of migrating from the NMCI environment.
