"NETCONN provides IT support to the DoD organizations responsible for enterprise services and cyber security; this includes serving as a prime contractor on DISA's ENCORE II contract."

ENCORE II is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, multiple-award contract for use by military services, the Department of Defense, the intelligence community and other federal agencies. NETCONN was awarded an ENCORE II contract in 2008.
