Fast 50 call for nominations

Applications due July 1 for annual rankings

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2013 Fast 50. The deadline for submitting applications is July 1.

Our annual list ranks the 50 fastest growing small-business contractors in the government market.

Any small business in the government market can nominate itself. To be considered, companies need to submit five years of government contracting revenue data, which will be used to calculate their compound annual growth rate. Companies are ranked by their growth rate, not by their overall revenue.

Click here for our online nomination form.

The 2013 Fast 50 will look at revenue growth from 2008 through 2012. The revenue figures submitted will be published as part of our Fast 50 package. For an example, see the 2012 Fast 50.

To be eligible, companies need to be considered a small business according to one of the various government criteria for being a small business. Companies in the 8(a) program, or those that are a service-disabled, veteran-owned company also are eligible. If you are unsure if you are a small business, visit the Small Business Administration webpage.

Revenue figures and other information submitted as part of the nomination process will be published on as part of our Fast 50 coverage.

Please use the online nomination form. The deadline is July 1. On the nomination form, the field labeled “Revenue from last year” is for 2012, Revenue from two years ago is for 2011, and so on, back to Revenue from 5 years ago, which is for 2008.
