Who won October's biggest contracts?

October saw a modest decrease in the number of contract awards being reported from September, a historically busy month due to the end of the fiscal year.

In October, we reported on 54 contract awards, just below September’s 58.

To make the top 10 list this time around, you had to have won a contract worth more than $116.5 million.

Of all of the top 10 contracts, one was a state contract, one was awarded by a civilian agency, and all of the others were defense agencies or military.

Also of note is that SAIC made the list twice with two contracts both awarded by the Defense Logistics Agency.
