Usually when an RFP is rigged

It will specify something that only the companies they want will have, like maybe "must have at least x datacenters in the US, y in Europe and z in Asia" or something so that the small fry can't meet the criteria. It is harder for them to challenge the reasonableness of such criteria than a short list of companies.

More typically it is rigged to a single company, but if the Trump administration has infected the decision making process for this RFP like they did the DoD one they will find any reason they can not to select Amazon as the final winner.
