Who won December's biggest contracts?

The final month of the year has come and gone, and 2015 ended quietly.

Washington Technology covered 45 contract awards in December, compared to a barely larger 46 awards in November.

October, November and December all had to follow the forever active September, which saw 71 awards this year.

December's 45 awards pales in comparison to December 2014’s 59 awards. This ends a trend of 2015 where the months outpaced contract awards from the year before.

The general size of contracts was up this month, however. To make the list in December, you had to have a contract with a value greater than $247 million, compared to the minimum value of $98.8 million last month.
