Who closed fiscal 2015 with the biggest contract awards?

As expected, the ninth month of 2015 saw a flurry of contracts as September closed out the government fiscal year.

Washington Technology covered 71 awards during September, compared to 55 in August.

This September’s 71 contract awards number is considerably greater than September 2014’s 58 awards, continuing a trend that began two months ago with 2015’s monthly contract awards surpassing the same month’s total a year earlier.

Before July 2015, each month of 2015 saw fewer awards when to its 2014 counterpart.

Some huge contracts were awarded this month. To make the top 10 list in September, you had to have won a contract worth more than $180 million.

Multiple award contracts took up two spots this month, and September was a particularly good month for Raytheon, who holds two spots on the Top 10.
