Amazon, Microsoft Emerge as Final Competitors for $10B DoD JEDI Cloud Contract

A spokeswoman for the Department of Defense said Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN) are the last two contenders for DoD’s potential 10-year, $10B Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure cloud procurement contract, Bloomberg reported Thursday.

Elissa Smith, a spokeswoman for the Pentagon, said Microsoft and Amazon were the only companies that met the JEDI contract’s “minimum requirements.”

Smith noted the department decided to move ahead with the final selection process after its inquiry found no conflicts of interest in the cloud acquisition process and expects to award the contract in mid-July.

The announcement means DoD ruled out bids from IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) for the single-award contract, according to the report.
