The case started when IBM complained to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) about how bids were evaluated when the CIA selected AWS. The GAO then recommended that CIA reopen the competition, and in response AWS filed a complaint with the Federal Claims court. IBM now plans to appeal the Court of Federal Claims' decision.
