The U.S. Department of Defense is investigating the bidding process for the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure Program to determine whether Amazon creates conflicts of interest by hiring a former Pentagon employee to help develop cloud computing procurement contracts.
The former Pentagon employee has moved from working for Amazon Web Services to a government employee and then back to AWS. Some people believe that the Pentagon's offer is tailored to Amazon's capabilities in the process of bidding, and Oracle, as the biggest bidder, has made accusations against it.
This undoubtedly also affects the capital market. By Friday, when the market closes,MicrosoftIts market capitalization is $822.6 billion, while Amazon's is $816.8 billion, Google's is $758.7 billion and Apple's is $746 billion.
