May was the busiest month of the year so far with 52 contract awards. We countdown the top 10 winners. See who made the cut.
May played host to a steady stream of contract awards, continuing the monthly rise in the number of contract awards we've covered since the beginning of 2013.
To make May’s list, you had to have a contract worth $115 million and above range.
Of the 52 contracts, 24 were awarded by the U.S. Navy; surprisingly, however, the Navy is only responsible for two of the top 10 contracts this month.
May also saw some international, state and local contract awards, a few of which have made the top 10 list.
