Navy seeks ERP cooperation

Naval Air Systems Command officials yesterday announced they had awarded another interoperability analysis contract to BearingPoint Inc. of Lexington Park, Md.

BearingPoint last July was awarded a $30 million contract to perform many of the same functions which involve determining the commonality among four Navy Enterprise Resource Planning pilot projects. This latest contract, worth $13.4 million, involves work that is expected to be completed by the end of the summer.

Naval Air Systems Command (Navair), Naval Sea Systems Command (Navsea), Naval Supply Systems Command (Navsup) and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (Spawar) each use different applications.

BearingPoint was the lead integrator on Navair's system and will be awarded the lead on the new contract. IBM Corp. and EDS, which led work on Navsea and Navsup respectively, will be awarded positions as major subcontractors. Before being acquired by IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers oversaw the Spawar project.

The systems run by each command are:

Navair: Sigma, which integrates finance, project planning and other back-office functions.

Navsea: Navy Enterprise Maintenance Automated Information System, designed to control daily business operations, maintenance reports and other activities.

Navsup: Supply and Maintenance Aviation Re-engineering Team, a pilot program to replace old systems for supply, maintenance and finance.

Spawar: Project Cabrillo, which handles back-office tasks, strategic planning and supply management.
