FCW : October 30, 2013
October 30, 2013 FCW.COM 9 A federal judge ruled on Oct. 8 that Amazon Web Services could immedi- ately resume building a $600 million cloud computing infrastructure for the CIA based on the terms of its original contract. But IBM, which protested the original award, has led for a stay of the ruling and plans to appeal. U.S. Court of Federal Claims Judge Thomas Wheeler s decision essentially overturned the Government Account- ability Of ce s June decision to sustain IBM s bid protest. In response to GAO s decision, the CIA reopened negotiations and rebid the contract in August. But AWS suc- cessful court challenge strikes down the CIA s corrective action and renders moot the new bids collected in the interim, according to Wheeler s order. AWS said it was pleased with the decision and looks forward to resum- ing work. At press time, Wheeler had not yet acted on IBM s request for a stay. The cloud contract has already been delayed multiple times. Microsoft and AT&T protested the CIA s proposal speci cations in mid-2012, forcing the agency to rework the procurement. AWS won the contract in early 2013, sparking the latest rounds of protests and legal proceedings. --- Frank Konkel AWS gets a CIA cloud win, but IBM is still ghting is USDA's ROI to date on its data warehouse to improve the integrity of the federal crop insurance program. 1,824% THE VIRTUAL PUBLIC SECTOR SPONSORED BY: research Report visit: www.FCW.com/2013VirtPubSector Virtualization: The shape of things to come Desktop Virtualization: Agencies get the concept Server virtualization: Success breeds success Storage Virtualization: Making Growth Manageable Virtualization: Not business as usual TOPICS INCLUDE Join the conversation FCW usesTwitter to break news, eld questions and ask our own.
