Report: Amazon, Microsoft, Google eye Pentagon’s JEDI cloud contract

Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Google are emerging as potential main contenders for the Defense Department‘s planned 10-year, $10 billion cloud procurement contract, Defense One reported Thursday.

The report said DoD could issue a request for proposals its Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure Cloud program as early as this week.

Defense Secretary James Mattis, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, has asked the department to factor security and resiliency features into its cloud technology acquisition effort.

Mattis also wants DoD to select a platform that will not take a long time to build and can help personnel transmit data to soldiers when they perform tactical missions, the report noted.

An initial draft RFP on the single-award JEDI contract has garnered more than 1,000 comments from both the public and private sectors.
