The Department of Defense has selectedÂ MicrosoftÂ for the potential 10-year, $10B Joint Enterprise Defense InfrastructureÂ cloud computing contract.
JEDI is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract covering enterprise-level platform-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service offerings intended toÂ support the Pentagonâ€™s mission and business operations, DoD said Friday.
Work will occur at the contractorâ€™s place of performance and could run through Oct. 24, 2029, if the department exercises all options.
DoD said JEDI has a two-year base term with a $1M guarantee and it expects spending to reach $210M during the base period driven by user adoption. The Government Accountability OfficeÂ and the Court of Federal Claims also conducted a review of the acquisition process.
Dana Deasy, chief information officer of DoD and aÂ 2019 Wash100 awardee, said the award marks a step in the implementation of the departmentâ€™s digital modernization strategy in support of the National Defense Strategy.
In August, the Pentagonâ€™s inspector general established a team of auditors to assess the single-award contract. MicrosoftÂ andÂ AmazonÂ (Nasdaq: AMZN)Â were named in April as final competitors for the JEDI program.
