David McKeown, chief information security officer at the Department of Defense (DOD), said the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) will assess companies that will apply for the Joint Warfighter Cloud Capability (JWCC) contract.
The multiple-award JWCC succeeds the now-scrapped Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure or JEDI contract, which was designed to have only one contractor, FedScoop reported Tuesday.
McKeown said the certification process for JWCC will be similar to that of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).
Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and other large cloud companies will contribute resources to JWCC. DOD expects to issue JWCC’s awards in April 2022, according to officials.
