Microsoft has beaten AWS and won a $10 Billion contract with the US DoD! That sends a strong message on whose Cloud is more secure and whose has the most qualified personnel. Don't be surprised if Amazon pulls their HQ2 plans out of Crystal City.

It also sends a strong message on who POTUS hates at the moment ...
We have all seen the results of when an "executive" gets their way with an IT deal cut on the golf course, but this is US government contracting! Let the petitions fly! Wrap it up in red tape for years or maybe MSFT will just walk away and not bother. As a company they have a strong sense of ethics.
Btw. why didn't anyone complain when MSFT won a $1.76 Billion dollar indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity deal with the Navy last January for "product engineering services"?
