Joint Staff Dumps Oracle and PeopleSoft Planning Software for Open Source


Plans to issue a new contract to MYMIC LLC

The Joint Staff currently uses Oracle and PeopleSoft for strategic planning software through a contract managed by a division of the Naval Sea Systems Command.

The Joint Staff runs the software on the Joint Organization Server and a server covering the Office of Secretary of Defense.

NAVSEA said in a contract notice it plans to issue a new contract to MYMIC LLC of Portsmouth, Virginia, for open source planning software to “reduce the high cost of licenses, technical support and custom modifications” with Oracle and PeopleSoft.

NAVSEA did not disclose the cost of the Oracle and PeopleSoft contracts, but did say the cost of the MYMIC deal is $465,306.40 – less than rounding up or down on many a military contract.
