DOD Reaffirms Original JEDI Cloud Award to Microsoft
The Department has completed its comprehensive re-evaluation of the JEDI Cloud proposals and determined that Microsoft’s proposal continues to represent the best value to the Government. The JEDI Cloud contract is a firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract that will make a full range of cloud computing services available to the DoD. While contract performance will not begin immediately due to the Preliminary Injunction Order issued by the Court of Federal Claims on February 13, 2020, DoD is eager to begin delivering this capability to our men and women in uniform.
The contract modernizes the Pentagon’s massive IT infrastructure which has up to a $10 billion valuation for the upgrade for a time period of perhaps 10 years.
