: Pentagon seeks bids from Amazon, Microsoft, Google and Oracle for major cloud contract

The Pentagon said Friday it is seeking bids from the four largest cloud providers for a controversial multibillion-dollar contract that has taken years to award.

The Defense Department announced it has issued solicitations to Amazon.com Inc.
AMZN,
+1.30%
,
Microsoft Corp.
MSFT,
+0.85%
,
Alphabet Inc.’s Google
GOOGL,
+0.14%

 
GOOG,
+0.22%
,
and Oracle Corp.
ORCL,
-0.12%

to bid for spots on the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC), the successor to the $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI). The latter contract stalled and was eventually canceled following a flurry of protests and lawsuits from Amazon and Oracle.

A final award of the contract is expected around April 2022.
