Re: $10bn cloud contract

Some background on federal contract announcements: the value of the contract in the press release is the maximum permitted over the full contract term. It's not the expected revenue. Quite often the amount spent is substantially less. Somehow there never seems to be a press release that says "that $50M contract we talked about 5 years ago only resulted in $3M in revenue".
