Who won March's biggest contracts?

March set a fierce pace for contract awards with 65 wins being reported. The month was especially good for Raytheon and SAIC. But who else made our top 10 list for the month?

The third month of 2014 set a torrid pace of contract awards with Washington Technology covering 65 awards for the month, 20 more than the 43 covered in February.

To make the list, you had to have won a contract worth more than $104 million.

This month was especially good for both Raytheon and SAIC, as both companies nabbed two spots on the top 10.

Also notable is PAE’s Navy contract award, which it owed to its acquisition of CSC’s Applied Technologies business last year. That deal won PAE the “best divestiture of 2013” title in our recent breakdown of the best M&A deals of 2013.
