Report: CIA Issues Presolicitation for Potential $10B Commercial Cloud Enterprise Contract

Jeff Brody

The CIA plans to award a potential $10B contract to expand the acquisition of commercial cloud services from multiple vendors, Bloomberg Government reported Thursday.

The new Commercial Cloud Enterprise contract will serve as a follow-on to the $600M Commercial Cloud Services vehicle the agency awarded to Amazon Web Services in 2013 and will have three parts: cloud service provider acquisition; systems integrator/multicloud management acquisition; and niche platform as a service and software as a service acquisitions.

AWS, Google and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) are expected to compete for the C2E contract vehicle, which seeks to increase storage and computing capacity, add new commercial services and provide additional support at secret and unclassified levels.

Interested stakeholders have until Oct. 10 to complete and submit a table included in the presolicitation notice posted on the Acquisition Research Center website.
