The Wall Street Journal: Amazon claims Pentagon’s JEDI review still favors Microsoft
WASHINGTON — Amazon.com Inc. accused the Pentagon of seeking to manipulate its review of a huge cloud-computing deal to steer the award to rival Microsoft Corp.
In a court filing made public Tuesday, Amazon
urged a federal judge to require the Defense Department to conduct a broader review than it has proposed.
Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims already halted work on the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, citing allegations by Amazon of contract irregularities.
In response, the Pentagon sought a halt to temporary court proceedings, saying it needed time to rethink certain aspects of the project. The Pentagon last year awarded the contract, expected to be worth up to $10 billion over a decade, to Microsoft
— triggering the lawsuit challenging the decision by Amazon.
