WHO WINS THE CONTRACTS?

According to the Central Contractor Registry (CCR), there are 21,407 companies registered under NAICS 541511 (source: active registrants, www.ccr.gov as of 11/26/2008).

HOW ARE THESE CONTRACTS PROCURED?

Over 54% of the contract dollars spend during the FY04 through Q2FY08 timeframe were awarded using full and open competition. This represented over $5.8 Billion for NAICS 541511. Almost 35% of contracts during this period did not report their acquisition strategy. These contracts could include those awarded using full and open competition, small business set-aside, or any manner of restriction. This accounted for over $3.7 Billion in contract dollars.

WHERE ARE THESE CONTRACTS PERFORMED?

These contracts are being performed across the continental United States and abroad. The 50 states plus Washington, DC have reported spending of $10.3 Billion and contracts for locations outside the United States total over $523 Million.

A high concentration – over 50% of work is performed within the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. This geographical area is home to many federal contractors, who are sometimes called “Beltway Bandits” due to their proximity to the headquarters of the Federal Government. Virginia reported the highest contract spending by a significant margin, with 29.9% of the market share, equating to over $3.2 Billion. Spending in Washington, DC and Maryland was significantly less (but still much more than other states), at just over $1 Billion apiece.

California was the only other state above $500 Million, with $631 Million in reported spending for the FY04 through Q2FY08 period. The remaining states in the top ten, along with nine other states all reported contract spending above $100 Million.
