Appeals court denies Oracle's latest JEDI protest

A U.S. appeals court has dismissed Oracle's challenge of the Pentagon's Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) cloud contract. For several years now, Oracle has been trying to sue its way into contention for the $10 billion JEDI contract, failing first to convince the Government Accountability Office and then the U.S. Court of Federal Claims that the DOD should open the contract to a multiple-award acquisition with more lenient gate requirements. The federal appeals court this week agreed with the decision of the claims court, finding “no reversible error” and terminating the case. Billy Mitchell has the latest on JEDI.

Bob Work said that right now the Department of Defense has a “one thousand flowers blooming” approach to its AI projects, with too many disparate ideas that won’t yield collective results fast enough. Instead, the JAIC should be a standards-setter and centralized architecture lead for AI across the DOD, he said. Jackson Barnett has more from Work.
