Microsoft 'disappointed' with JEDI delay

Corporate Vice President at Microsoft Communications Frank Shaw issued a statement on Thursday, saying that the company is "disappointed" by the Court of Federal Claims's decision to temporarily block the JEDI (Joint Enterprise Defence Infrastructure) cloud contract between Microsoft Corp. and the United States Department of Defense (DoD).

Shaw stated that the company believes that it "will ultimately be able to move forward with the work to make sure" that members of DoD "can access the new technology they urgently require." Microsoft representative expressed confidence in the Pentagon and belief that the legal process will show that the company won the contract fairly.

In November, Amazon Web Services first filed a lawsuit against Microsoft over the contract before filing a motion to pause the deal in January, accusing the US President Donald Trump of abusing power and influencing the Pentagon's decision amid his alleged animosity against Amazon.com Inc.
