As much as I dislike Oracle, and I do alot, it seems they have a case here. At least they would  if they were going after a non-government entity. Against the DoD on matters of national security...good luck lol

As I understand it:

There was originally an RFP for a single provider for cloud computing. Oracle didn't meet the minimum requirements. Both Amazon and MS did meet the requirements.

After there was likely pressure applied to favour MS because of Trump's hatred of Bezos there were lawsuits and a bunch of reviews and in order to avoid a scandal the DoD cancelled it and are now issuing an RFP that allows for the use of multiple providers.

Presumably the new RFP has largely the same requirements as the old one and the DoD has said that based on the prior project Oracle almost certainly won't meet the minimum standards.

Assuming there was nothing wrong in the first rejection of Oracle then I don't think this should be an issue.
