Arvada, CO: Washington Technology’s annual Top 25 8(a) Contractors list ranks CounterTrade Products, Inc. ninth in the country. The Top 25 list is compiled by Federal Sources Inc. of McLean, Va. FSI analyzed procurement data from the General Services Administration to create the rankings. The companies were ranked according to their total IT prime contracting dollars in fiscal 2004, not just their 8(a) dollars. The procurement center only reports agency spending with prime contractors, so the list does not reflect subcontracting revenue.
