Should the Federal Govt "spread" its cloud computing contracts around?

WSJ Reports:  

Amazon dominates the cloud-infrastructure industry with a 39% share of the 2021 global market ahead of Microsoft at No. 2 with a 21% share, according to research firm Gartner Inc. ... 
Microsoft has grown frustrated about its lack of progress selling its Azure cloud services to the U.S. federal government with its rival’s Amazon Web Services continuing to win most of those contracts, said some of the people familiar with its efforts.  ...   
Microsoft Corp. is rallying other big name cloud-computing providers such as Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Oracle Corp. to press the U.S. government into spreading its spending on such services more widely, taking aim at Inc.’s dominance in such contracts. 

So what would be the effects of this?  Some middling economists have estimated that similar efforts by the Small Business Administration to "spread its spending around" (by "setting aside" auctions for small firms) raises prices by 15%.   

The reason is simple, losing bidders set the price.  If you limit the pool of available bidders, you make it easier for the winner to outbid the losing bidders, so price goes up in a procurement auction (where bidders compete to sell).

  2. Hello everyone here, this is the story of my life. I always knew my husband was up to something but I had no proof of this. He receives strange calls, he protects his phone jealously and would never drop it for any reason whatsoever, to the point of him taking it to the shower. This made me go online in search of ways I could remotely monitor his conversations, I tried a number of phone monitoring apps but each one of them failed to access his phone. I could not even physically access his phone, which made matters worse. I had already given up and resigned to fate when my younger sister introduced me to a hacker named REFUND POLICY they both went to the same college to help me read my husband’s messages and social medias just in case something was off, in less than a day REFUND POLICY helped me gain access to my husband’s phone remotely, I found out my husband has another wife with 2 children in another state. Last year has been the roughest of my life but now I feel relieved and working on me and my kids while the divorce papers are still in court. I just wanted to share this just incase anyone is in a situation where they don’t trust their partners anymore. There is no harm in wanting to know what your second half is into, it saves you from wasting more years of your life with people who do not deserve you. I will leave the hacker’s contacts below just incase anyone needs his services and assistance.
