[Slashdot] - Pentagon Watchdog Clears Microsoft's $10 Billion Win Over Amazon

Recommended Posts

The Defense Department's watchdog found no evidence that the Pentagon's controversial decision to award a $10 billion cloud-computing contract to Microsoft was the result of interference from President Donald Trump, though it said its probe was limited by the White House. From a report: The 317-page report issued Wednesday by the inspector general also found that giving the JEDI contract to a single company -- Microsoft -- rather than dividing it among competitors was "consistent with applicable acquisition standards." While the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure project was hotly disputed by rival technology companies from the start, the project gained broader attention when Trump publicly expressed concern about the assumption that the contract would go to Amazon.com.
