Lauren Brier, associate attorney for Government Contracting & Litigation at PilieroMazza, Stan Soloway, president & CEO of Celero Strategies, and Roger Waldron, president of the Coalition for Government Procurement discuss what happens post-award for JEDI, and the precedent set by the enormous contract.

Even though JEDI has been awarded to Microsoft, it’s still not a done deal. The award opens the contract to bid protests from competitors, and bringing systems online could take months. Government Matters convened a panel of experts to discuss what’s next for the massive cloud contract.

 

Lauren Brier, associate attorney for Government Contracting & Litigation at PilieroMazza–

“[Amazon] meets the threshold of an interested party. Since Oracle was already dismissed from the protest, their interests aren’t at stake here. Amazon really is the only one that will have standing to protest. That’s not to say that Oracle can’t try to do it.”

 

Stan Soloway, president & CEO of Celero Strategies–

“I don’t recall as tortured a procurement as this has been over the last several years with all the different issues and drama that has been associated with it. It’ll be very fascinating to watch it play out.”

Roger Waldron, president of the Coalition for Government Procurement–

 

“Once the decision is issued, Microsoft would presumably be able to start immediately on work. They’re going to be in the planning phases, if there’s a stay of performance, that doesn’t mean they’re not going to be prepared. Often in these situations at the time of award, there’s a task order issued to begin to initiate performance. In this case, a task order to cover the minimum of this IDIQ contract.”
