DOD Pushes Remand Request Amid Amazon’s JEDI Lawsuit

DOD Pushes Remand Request Amid Amazon’s JEDI Lawsuit

The Department of Defense has defended its request for a four-month remand as it resolves Amazon Web Services' lawsuit over the $10B Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract.

AWS had asked the federal claims court to deny the Pentagon's request and accused the department of attempting to manipulate the contract's terms. Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith had said AWS would likely prove that DOD erroneously evaluated the proposal submitted by Microsoft, which won the JEDI contract in October, Nextgov reported.

Amazon said the Pentagon should be required to reevaluate the proposals and take into account the errors stated in the protest, in addition to allowing both companies to adjust prices.

DOD Spokesman Robert Carver said the department "disagrees with the arguments Amazon makes in its response."
