Murray Comments on Amazon’s Challenge to Pentagon Contract

22 November 2019 Bloomberg News
Partner Frank Murray was quoted in a Bloomberg article, “Amazon’s $10 Billion Pentagon Challenge: Proving Trump Meddled,” about Amazon’s uphill battle to overturn a Pentagon decision to award a $10 billion cloud-computing contract to archrival Microsoft.

To help make its case, Murray said, Amazon could examine whether there were any differences between how the companies’ bids were evaluated by lower level technical staff and top Pentagon officials. If top officials overrode the recommendation of their technical staff, that could be a significant piece of evidence for Amazon. “The nuts and bolts of the case are going to be: how were the proposals evaluated? And were they reasonable?” he said.
