Oracle Corp.

ORCL, +1.07%

plans another appeal in the imminent award of a massive federal government procurement its General Counsel Dorian Daley says was “unlawful on several grounds.” The $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI), is expected to be awarded by the Defense Department in September. Microsoft Corp.

MSFT, +1.54%

and Inc.

AMZN, +1.10%

are finalists for the cloud deal after Oracle and International Business Machines Corp.

IBM, +0.32%

were eliminated earlier this year. Oracle sued, claiming Amazon had an unfair advantage because of a conflict of interest, but a judge dismissed the case last month.
