Congress' role in EIS

Experts point to Congress' recent interest in the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) as a move that could give agencies a new urgency to transition to the contract. In particular, the House Oversight and Reform Committee added the EIS transition as a category on its latest FITARA Scorecard. "I’m hopeful that having EIS as part of the scorecard will also generate that kind of motivation for the agencies to really focus on it and be able to accelerate the progress that’s necessary to be able to be in a position where they’re there on time with their transition,” said Carrol Harris, director of IT and cybersecurity for the Government Accountability Office.

Amazon alleges that it offered the Pentagon what it believes to be technically superior cloud services at a lower price after the department took corrective actions on the contract. Despite that, DOD still went on to reaffirm its original award of JEDI to Microsoft in September.
