You make a great point. Perhaps we should do two lists each month. One with single awards, and one with multiple awards. Thanks.

It would be helpful for you to separate actual awards of work to be performed from winners of multiple awards contracts. Your February statistics show the largest to be a multi-award contract for $680m where two firms can compete for the work, and your second largest to be a task order to a single firm for $640m. Clearly, if you could only pick #1 or #2 anyone would pick #2.
