Alleged, according to this report.
The largest technology companies in the world, including Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, all have contracts with the American government and federal law enforcement agencies that had gone previously unreported.

Research from the non-profit Tech Inquiry has found that these companies have thousands of deals with the Department of Defense, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The revelation comes as workers from Google and Microsoft are asking executives to take action and end contracts with the police and other law enforcement organisations as Black Lives Matter protests continue across the country.
An analysis of over 30 million government contracts signed over the past five years found that many of these large companies use subcontracts to fulfil government requests.
Many of the contracts involve cloud storage, such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure, as well as database, app support, and administrative services.

Recently, these large technology companies were also found to be providing “essential web services” to ten of the most controversial surveillance companies in the world, eight of which were on a US blacklist due to allegations of human rights violations.
