The eventual winner of the Pentagon’s two-year contract to provide extensive cloud services isn’t a lock to be awarded two extensions that would add eight more years, spokeswoman Dana White said.

“I want to separate fact from fiction -- what it is, and what it is not,” White told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday “That means the initial contract award is only two years. It is not a 10-year contract.”
