COVID-19 Continues to Generate Millions in Government Contracts

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a record number of global shortages of supplies and workers.

With traditional manufacturers struggling to meet demands for supplies and increased unemployment, contractors have jumped at the opportunity to snag bids. One in ten federal COVID-19 vendors is new to the world of government contracting.
