US defense chief says cloud contract was fair, despite Amazon challenge

US Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Friday rejected any suggestion of bias in a Pentagon decision to award Microsoft Corp an up to $10 billion cloud computing contract. The clarification comes after Amazon.com announced plans to challenge it. On Thursday, Amazon said it would be challenging for a U.S. agency to award a contract objectively when the president is disparaging one of the contestants.
