Google Files Suit Against Interior Department
Tuesday - 11/23/2010, 3:14pm EST
According to a lawsuit filed in U.S. Court of Federal Claims, Google says they met with Interior Department officials on several occasions asking them to consider them and their “cost saving benefits” and assure them that Google’s applications could care for the agency’s needs.
Google maintains that the Interior Department’s request for quotations was written to prevent the company from competing because it required the system to include the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite.
The contract is estimated to pay $59 million over five years.
Google filed the lawsuit with its partner Onix Networking on Oct. 29.According to the Wall Street Journal, Google and Microsoft are also competing for a contract to consolidate and modernize email at the General Services Administration.
