Federal Integrator's Top 25 Subcontractors

This year's subcontractor list is a tribute to stability: All but four of the vendors were ranked as top product suppliers in either 1994 or 1995.

To compile the list, we surveyed new contract awards and post-award technology-refreshment upgrades since June 1995. We used that analysis to gauge the level of subcontractor activity. We also conducted interviews with numerous industry executives to collect additional information.

Federal Integrator selected subcontractor standouts within the following product categories: Applications Software, PCs/Workstations, Systems Software/Development Tools, Operating Systems, Networking and Storage.
