The Department of Defense has selected Microsoft for the potential 10-year, $10B Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure 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 to support the Pentagon's mission and business operations, DoD said Friday.
Work will occur at the contractor'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 Office and the Court of Federal Claims also conducted a review of the acquisition process.
Dana Deasy, chief information officer of DoD and a 2019 Wash100 awardee, said the award marks a step in the implementation of the department's digital modernization strategy in support of the National Defense Strategy.
In August, the Pentagon's inspector general established a team of auditors to assess the single-award contract. Microsoft and Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN) were named in April as final competitors for the JEDI program.
