The Pentagon said Friday it is seeking bids from the four largest cloud providers for a controversial multibillion-dollar contract that has taken years to award.

The Defense Department announced it has issued solicitations to Inc. Microsoft Corp. Alphabet Inc.’s Google   and Oracle Corp. to bid for spots on the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC), the successor to the $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI). The latter contract stalled and was eventually canceled following a flurry of protests and lawsuits from Amazon and Oracle.

A final award of the contract is expected around April 2022.
