Introducing the 2015 Top 25 8(a)s

Each year, we rank the largest 8(a) companies in the government market according to their prime contracting dollars.

This year’s rankings include several Alaska Native and tribally owned companies, but there are still some private companies as well.

We rank the companies each year as a way of identifying successful small businesses in the government market.

This year’s rankings also might indicate that the market may have hit bottom. In 2014, we only had one company with over $100 million in revenue. This year we have two. Last year’s No. 25 had $29 million in prime contracts. This year, No. 25 stands at $40 million.

The rankings are based on the Federal Procurement Data System and we analyze the data using a set of over 700 product and service codes, or PSCs. We use the same codes for our annual Top 100 rankings. The codes represent IT, consulting, professional services, telecommunications and other high-tech products and services. We used fiscal 2014 data.

It's really good to see how many ANC "small businesses" are exploiting the system... In all seriousness, this list clearly illustrates the need for reform in that area.
