AWS signs on to defend itself in Oracles JEDI RFP lawsuit against US government

Just when you didnt think there could be any more drama over the Pentagons decade long, $10 billion JEDI contract RFP, the plot thickened again last week when Amazon Web Services (AWS) joined the US government as a defendant in Oracles lawsuit over the Pentagons handling of the contract RFP process.
Earlier this month, Oracle filed a complaint in the United States Court of Federal Claims alleging that the JEDI RFP process unfairly favored Amazon, that the single vendor decision (which wont be made until April), violates federal procurement rules and that two members of the JEDI team had a conflict of interest because of previous affiliations with Amazon Web Services.
AWS filed paperwork to join the case, stating that because of the claims being made by Oracle, it had a direct stake in the outcome. Oracles Complaint specifically alleges conflicts of interest involving AWS. Thus, AWS has direct and substantial economic interests at stake in this case, and its disposition clearly could impair those interests, the companys attorneys stated in the motion.
The Motion to Intervene as a Defendant was approved by United States Court of Federal Claims Senior Judge, Eric G. Bruggink the same day.
