This report contains summary data on the 100 companies, including their subsidiaries, which were awarded the largest total dollar volume of Department of Defense prime contract awards during fiscal year 1998.


INTRODUCTION

This report presents summary data on the 100 companies, and their subsidiaries, receiving the largest dollar volume of Department of Defense (DoD) prime contract awards during fiscal year (FY) 1998. Table 1 lists the 100 companies in alphabetical order and gives their associated rank. Table 2 identifies the parent companies in rank order, with their subsidiaries, and gives the total net value of awards for both the parent company and its subsidiaries. In many cases, the parent company receives no awards itself, but appears on the list because of its subsidiaries. Table 2 also shows what percentage of the total awards each company's awards represent, as well as the cumulative percentage represented by all companies.

Table 3 lists the top 100 companies DoD-wide in rank order and breaks the totals into three categories of procurement: Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E); Other Services and Construction; and Supplies and Equipment. Table 4 lists the top 50 companies for each of the Reporting Components in rank order, and by category of procurement.

NOTES ON COVERAGE

Data in this report reflect the net value of both debit and credit procurement actions over $25,000; e.g., the value of a terminated contract, or other downward adjustment to a contract, is deducted from a firm's total award amount, while modifications and other positive adjustments are treated as increases. Procurement actions include definitive contracts, the obligated portions of letter contracts, job orders, task orders, delivery orders, and any other orders against existing contracts. Research and development, services, construction, and supply and equipment contracts, worldwide are included.

The report does not include those parts of indefinite quantity contracts that have not been translated into specific orders to business firms or those contracts that have not yet become mutually binding agreements between the government and the company. The company totals do not include contracts made by other U.S. Government Agencies and financed with DoD funds or contracts awarded in foreign nations through their respective governments.
