The contract for the creation of cloud storage infrastructure is designed for ten years, its value is $10 billion.

In the statement, representatives of Amazon claim that the decision was "accompanied by mistakes and prejudice, so it is necessary that these issues be considered and resolved. The company did not specify when the lawsuit would be filed.

Recall that the decision of the defense department to hand over the contract to Microsoft became known at the end of October. Amazon, who participated in the tender, was considered the main bidder for the contract. U.S. media linked Amazon's loss to the constant criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump of Jeff Bezos’ company. As the newspaper notes, in the spring of 2019, Amazon almost won the tender, but the Pentagon changed its mind at the last moment and decided to reconsider the deal once again.
