The Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) is the Department of the Navy’s (DON) shore-based enterprise network in the continental United States and Hawaii, providing a single integrated, secure information technology (IT) environment for reliable, stable information transfer. NMCI represents about 70 percent of all DON IT operations and is second only to the Internet in size. NMCI revolutionized the way the DON does business in both classified and unclassified environments. It brought standardization to network operations, data security, technical support and real-time communications across every level of the Navy and Marine Corps by establishing common hardware, software and operating systems. As a result, the DON achieved: Increased productivity, greater interoperability and enhanced Information Assurance (IA) security.
NMCI is part of the Naval Enterprise Networks (NEN)
Program Office that 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.
NEN is part of the DON’s Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS), which oversees a portfolio of enterprise-wide information technology programs designed to enable common business processes and provide standard IT capabilities to Sailors at sea, Marines in the field and their support systems. Established in the spring of 2006, the PEO ensures these programs maximize value to the warfighter by balancing cost with the capability delivered to the end user.
