Contract activity slowed down a bit in the fourth month of 2015, but April still saw several giant procurements come to market with ceilings in the billions of dollars.
Washington Technology covered 41 awards during April, compared to 58 in March. But not only did we see a drop from March to April, but April 2015’s number of contracts awarded paled in comparison to April 2014’s 69 awards.
This continues a trend that began in January with year-over-year comparisons not quite holding up.
2014: 53 awards
2015: 38 awards
2014: 43 awards
2015: 33 awards
2014: 66 awards
2015: 58 awards
2014: 69 awards
2015: 41 awards
However, some huge contracts were still awarded this month, however. To make the top 10 list in April, you had to have won a contract worth more than $157 million.
Half of the Top 10 are multiple awards, as well.
