Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) has won the potential 10-year, $10B Joint Enterprise Defense InfrastructureÂ cloud computing contract from the Department of Defense.
JEDI is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract and includes enterprise-level platform-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service offerings in support of the Pentagonâs mission and business operations, DoD said Friday.
The Washington Headquarters Services obligated $1M in operations and maintenance funds for fiscal year 2020 on a task order, covering the minimum guarantee.
Work will occur at the contractorâs place of performance and is expected to be completed on Oct. 24, 2029.
DoD said JEDI has a two-year base term with a $1M guarantee and it expects spending to reach $210M during the base period driven by user adoption. The Government Accountability OfficeÂ and the Court of Federal Claims also conducted a review of the acquisition process.
Dana Deasy, DoDâs chief information officer andÂ 2019 Wash100 awardÂ winner, said the award marks a step in the implementation of the departmentâs digital modernization strategy in support of the National Defense Strategy.
In August, the Pentagonâs inspector general established a team of auditors to assess the single-award contract. MicrosoftÂ andÂ AmazonÂ (Nasdaq: AMZN)Â were named in April as final competitors for the JEDI program.
