100 Companies Receiving the Largest Dollar Volume of Prime Contract Awards
Lockheed Martin Corp. grabbed the top spot for reported business with the
Defense Department last year, according to a list released Wednesday by
The DOD list measures the net value of contract awards in fiscal 2000 that
were at least $25,000. Lockheed had $15.12 billion in such business last
year. The list doesn't include non-DOD contracts that Defense agencies use
to buy goods and services.
Northrop Grumman Corp. placed No. 5 on the list, with $3.08 billion, and
TRW Inc. placed eighth, with $2 billion. Science Applications International
Corp. came in 10th with $1.5 billion.
Northrop Grumman should finish higher in fiscal 2001 because it bought Federal
Data Corp. last year from The Carlysle Group, which was eleventh with $1.2
billion in DOD business. In late December, Northrop Grumman also agreed
to purchase Litton Industries, and the company also gobbled up Logicon Inc.
and Sterling Software Inc.'s federal group last year.
Computer Sciences Corp. finished 12th at $1.16 billion, and Marconi Corp.
placed 14th with $997 million. Dyncorp had the No. 17 spot with $771 million.
The information technology-related vendors were nestled among a diverse
group of vendors, including Procter & Gamble Co., Rolls-Royce PLC, Philip
Morris Companies Inc., Federal Express Corp. and the governments of Canada
and Germany, as well as oil and shipbuilding companies and research universities.
Companies have different ways of tracking their salessome don't include
them until they get paid, for example. Such practices disrupt lists such
as this one from DOD.
