2016 TOP CONTRACTS

2016's top 20 contract awards

We saw slightly fewer contract awards during 2016 than 2015 with the total number of contracts we covered dropping 26, from 589 to 563.

We've gathered the 20 largest contracts from 2016 in this roundup.

As one might expect, most of these contracts are huge multiple-award contracts, but eight lucky companies secured single award contracts large enough to make the list. The smallest contract was worth $700 million and was won by one company. The largest was worth $25 billion and had 81 winners.

Only four months in 2016 – May, June, July, and September – saw more contract awards when compared to the same months the previous year.
