Summary
  • Digital Equipment Corp (DEC), Wang Laboratories and other vendors are waiting for the US General Service Board's Contract Appeals to make a decision on how the US Air force awards a $4.5 billion contract. The decision may set a precedent on how large systems specifications are written. The five-year contract is for 20,000 small multi-user systems for various government agencies. DEC objects to the procurement specifications that require conformance of operating systems to AT&​T's UNIX System V Interface Definition. Other objections involve ambiguous operating system evaluations and many smaller purchases under one procurement. Vendors want to compete for contracts with their best operating systems.
