五角大楼寻求重新考虑部分价值100亿美元的云计算交易

2020-3-15 16:23

 

路透社援引法庭文件报道,美国国防部(DoD)正在寻求法庭许可,以重新考虑其将价值100亿美元的云计算合同授予微软公司的决定的某些方面。


上个月,一名美国法官批准了亚马逊公司(Amazon.com Inc.)暂时停止国防部和微软(Microsoft)推进该交易的请求,亚马逊曾表示,这反映了唐纳德·特朗普总统的不正当影响。


美国国防部周四晚些时候在提交给美国联邦法院的一份文件中表示,美国政府的律师已要求一名联邦法官向五角大楼授予“120天的时间,重新考虑受到质疑的机构决定的某些方面”。


文件显示:“国防部不打算与报价方进行讨论,也不打算接受除价格方案以外的招标方案修订。”


五角大楼还表示,希望重新评估竞标者的部分价格建议和在线市场。


亚马逊云计算部门的一名发言人在一份电子邮件声明中表示:“我们很高兴国防部已经承认了影响绝地武士奖决定的‘实质性和合法的’问题,纠正行动是必要的。”


这家电子商务巨头指控特朗普施加了“不适当的压力”和偏见,导致国防部将联合企业防御基础设施(绝地)云计算合同授予微软。


美国国防部长埃斯珀(Mark Esper)此前否认存在偏见,称五角大楼是在没有外部影响的情况下,公平、自由地做出了选择。


微软的一位发言人表示,五角大楼在授予这份合同时做出了正确的决定。


他说:“不过,我们支持他们重新考虑少数几个因素的决定,因为这可能是解决所有问题的最快方式,并能迅速向我们军队的全体人员提供所需的现代技术。”

 

The US Department of Defense (DoD) is seeking court permission to reconsider certain aspects of its decision to award a US$10 billion cloud computing contract to Microsoft Corp., Reuters reports, citing court filings.

A US judge last month granted Amazon.com Inc.’s request to temporarily halt the DoD and Microsoft from moving forward with the deal, which Amazon had said reflected undue influence by President Donald Trump.

Lawyers for the US government have asked a federal judge to grant the Pentagon “120 days to reconsider certain aspects of the challenged agency decision”, the DoD said in a filing to the US Court of Federal Claims late on Thursday.

“DoD does not intend to conduct discussions with offerors or to accept proposal revisions with respect to any aspect of the solicitation other than price scenario,” according to the filing.

The Pentagon also said it wanted to re-evaluate parts of the bidders’ price proposals and online marketplaces.

“We are pleased that the DoD has acknowledged ‘substantial and legitimate’ issues that affected the JEDI award decision, and that corrective action is necessary,” a spokesman for Amazon’s cloud computing unit said in an emailed statement.

The e-commerce giant has alleged that Trump exerted “improper pressure” and bias that led the DoD to award the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) cloud computing contract to Microsoft.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper previously denied there was bias and said the Pentagon made its choice fairly and freely without external influence.

A Microsoft spokesman said the Pentagon made the right decision when they awarded the contract.

“However, we support their decision to reconsider a small number of factors as it is likely the fastest way to resolve all issues and quickly provide the needed modern technology to people across our armed forces,” he said.
