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

The Defense Department announced it has issued solicitations to Amazon.com Inc.
AMZN,

Microsoft Corp.
MSFT,
+0.75%
,
Alphabet Inc.’s Google
GOOGL,

and Oracle Corp.

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.
