DOD can take corrective action on JEDI, judge rules

The Department of Defense will get its chance to take corrective action on the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) cloud contract. DOD will have 120 days “reconsider the aspects of the procurement challenged in [Amazon’s] protest” of the $10 billion commercial cloud contract. Not much more than that is known, for now, because the order is sealed. But we do know from a previous DOD filing that the department wanted to re-evaluate a key part of the contract that dealt with a pricing scenario for online cloud storage. Billy Mitchell has more.

The latest on the COVID-19 supercomputing consortium

FedScoop has the latest on the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium. In an exclusive interview, Paul Dabbar, undersecretary for science at the Department of Energy, told FedScoop that the consortium is developing processes for measuring progress and publicizing results of its research projects, which have only just begun. “If we find something interesting, for example, on the genome analysis or on the repositioning of existing drugs, a measurement of success is that hopefully we … publish or make public, one way or the other, the results of that,” Dabbar said. “So that the broader scientific and medical communities can see that.” Dave Nyczepir spoke with Dabbar.

Battlefield tech for teleworking

The Air Force is scaling up tech that was meant for the battlefield to keep its acquisition professionals connected during the pandemic. Air Force acquisition teams will be able to stay connected through a platform called deviceONE originally meant for sensor-data transmission on the department’s Advanced Battlefield Management System (ABMS). The service has placed orders for 50 of the secret-level communications systems and hopes to distribute them to senior acquisition leaders so they can stay up-to-date on programs they oversee, Will Roper, the assistant secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, said last week. And more are soon to come. Jackson Barnett has the scoop.

In an op-ed, Cisco Systems' Alan Balutis gives his thoughts on what, if anything, can be done to speed up the transition to the $50 billion Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract. He looks back at how he led the Commerce Department to a successful transition to Networx many years ago, and how CIOs today can replicate his success in moving to EIS. See what Balutis had to say.


Bridging legacy and cloud IT into one operating environment

Federal agencies face a growing challenge: How do they capitalize on cloud benefits when their IT infrastructure increasingly exists in a dual world of on-prem and cloud environments? What’s needed, say experts from VMware, is a secure application platform that uses virtualization to lay across networks, bringing the best of cloud to applications no matter where they reside.
