It’s the end of the fiscal year, and with it comes the feeling of use it or lose it in every government office. And the final day in the month didn’t have contract dollar amounts higher than ever seen before. But it did have a lot of contract awards – 77 to be exact. It was a busy week for the contracting office – many of them probably wished for an extended weekend.
