While two cloud giants fighting it out in open court may not intrigue you, the documentation does highlight some of the results of the CIA evaluation, that show Amazon winning the bid by a substantial margin–substantial enough for the CIA to award the contract to AWS even though it’s bid was 50% (or more than USD50million) higher.
