Federal Procurement

The U.S. government purchases nearly $200 billion a year in goods and services. Federal contracts include everything from complex space vehicles to janitorial services to cancer research. By law, federal agencies are required to establish contracting goals, so that 23 percent of all government purchases come from small businesses.
