(b) Content- The plan required under subsection (a) shall include the following elements:

(1) A recommendation and rationale for a maximum number of contractors to be eligible for contract awards under NETCENTS-2 to foster competition and reduce overall costs associated with hardware and operation and maintenance of Air Networks.

(2) The methodology used to periodically review existing eligible NETCENTS-2 contractors and contracts.

Plan to increase number of contractors eligible for contracts under Air Force NETCENTS-2 contract (sec. 866)

The Senate amendment contained a provision (sec. 889C) that would require the Secretary of Defense to develop a plan to increase the number of contractors eligible to be awarded contracts under the Air Force's Network-Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTS-2) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract. The Secretary would be required to submit that plan to the congressional defense committees within 180 days of enactment of this Act.

The House bill contained no similar provision.

The House recedes.
