Who won May's biggest contracts?

While contract award momentum slowed a little in May, there was still a great deal of awards made—61, to be exact. That’s right in the same range as the 69 in April and the 65 in March.

To make the list this time around, you have to have won a contract more than $101 million.

May also was a good month for international contracts, with three of those contracts grabbing spots on the Top 10.
