In the Sandbox...

Squid on deck...

"Part of the challenge the new secretary of Homeland Security is going to have is to merge all of those IT systems in what is likely going to be one of the largest IT integration projects in history. The model that we're looking at is the model of the Navy Marine Corps Internet, because that seems to be working. It works fast, and it's a revolutionary way for the government to work with IT industries. The Navy Marine Corps Internet says the following: All of the computers, all of the PCs, laptops, routers, and servers that the Navy and the Marines own, they give title to the prime contractor. The prime contractor has a five-year contract, renewable, to build and run an intranet for the Navy and Marines. The Navy and Marines are buying a service and will own no hardware and will lease no hardware. What they're buying is a service for 400,000 seats, at $2,800 a seat per year, for five years. It's a very different way for the government to do business. Buying applications, buying services, but not owning and not operating a network."
