Naval Enterprise Networks (NEN)
About NEN

Established on Feb. 24, 2011, the Naval Enterprise Networks (NEN) Program Office (PMW 205) manages the acquisition life-cycle of the Department of the Navy’s (DON) enterprise-wide information technology (IT) networks. NEN’s portfolio includes the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), the OCONUS Navy Enterprise Network (ONE-Net) and the Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN).  NEN provides program management of the NMCI Continuity of Services Contract (CoSC), while continuing to develop the acquisition approach and transition strategy roadmap for NGEN’s successful implementation. NEN unifies the DON’s terrestrial networks and data management to improve capability and service while saving significant dollars by focusing efforts under one program office and one enterprise network construct.
