This report presents the results of the DoD Office of Inspector General (OIG) review of the DoD Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) Cloud procurement process and our investigation into allegations that former DoD officials engaged in ethical misconduct related to the JEDI Cloud procurement.
The JEDI Cloud procurement provides a contract vehicle through which DoD organizations can obtain cloud computing services. Cloud computing is a subscription-based service that provides on-demand storage, networking, servers, software applications, and other computing services. It allows users to store and access data and programs over the internet rather than on a computer hard drive. Users can access information from anywhere at any time, removing the need for the user to be in the same physical location as the hardware that stores the data.
