After government websites indicated that Citrix (CTXS), Amazon (AMZN) and others succeeded in getting the DoD to reconsider its awarding of a $1.6B, five-year contract to VMware (VMW), Stifel said it doesn't think VMware has necessarily lost the opportunity, but that the company will now likely face a more competitive bidding process to win the deal.
