From the Document: "In September 2017, the Deputy Secretary of Defense issued a memorandum calling for the accelerated adoption of a Department of Defense (DOD) enterprise-wide cloud services solution as a key component of ongoing DOD modernization efforts. Accordingly, DOD is seeking to 'acquire a[n] … enterprise cloud services solution that can support Unclassified, Secret, and Top Secret requirements,' based on commercially available cloud service solutions, through the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) Cloud program. The Department is in the final stages of evaluating proposals and anticipates announcing a contract award decision in August 2019. DOD requested $61.9 million in funding for the JEDI Cloud acquisition program for Fiscal Year (FY) 2020. Significant industry and congressional attention has been focused on DOD's intent to award the JEDI Cloud contract to a single company."
