FCW Reports on Bid Protest Over Amazon Cloud Contract for CIA

Frank Konkel: “The 10-year, $600 million cloud computing contract between Amazon Web Services and the Central Intelligence Agency first reported by FCW is under protest by one of the contract’s initial bidders…Amazon and the CIA both declined to comment on the protests — just as neither would officially confirm the contract itself in March when FCW initially reported it. But the protest confirms the existence of the ground-breaking contract between AWS – the largest commercial cloud service provider in the world – and the CIA, which previously had implemented several smaller, highly specific private clouds.”
