Amazon’s Legal Tussle Prompts U.S. to Considers Ending JEDI Cloud Project


A Wall Street Journal report has it that U.S. Pentagon officials are mulling ending its JEDI cloud-computing project, caught up in litigation from Inc.

Amazon, which was seen as a front-runner to win the $10 billion JEDI project that went to Microsoft Corp in 2019, has argued the contract process reflected undue influence from former President Donald Trump.

A U.S. Court of Federal Claims judge last month refused to dismiss Amazon’s claims alleging the Trump administration interfered in the Pentagon’s award.

Last year, the U.S. Defense Department completed a comprehensive re-evaluation of its contract proposals and determined that Microsoft’s submission still represented the best value for the government.
