DoD to Consider Interoperability, Cost, Security in Cloud IT Procurement

1 min read

The Defense Department is considering security, cost, interoperability and user friendliness as key factors in the procurement of a cloud-based information technology platform, DoD News reported Thursday.

Dana White, Pentagon’s chief spokesperson, told reporters Thursday the department will conduct a full and open competition for its Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure acquisition effort.

“It is a single-award contract. It is not a sole-source contract, and it is not designed with a specific vendor or company in mind,” White added.

She noted the JEDI contract will have an initial two-year performance period and that DoD will re-examine the marketplace to decide what kinds of technology or service the department will acquire over the contract’s two option periods.
