Government Contracting Spending Generic Cash Capitol

While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused business shutdowns and layoffs across Northern Virginia, the region's reliance on federal government contracting continues to provide a buffer from the economic impacts. 

An analysis by InsideNoVa of data compiled by ProPublica found that 125 Northern Virginia companies have received nearly $1 billion in federal government contracts related to COVID-19 this year.  Companies in the state of Virginia overall have received $1.38 billion in contracts, more than any other state. In fact, the value of contracts in Northern Virginia alone is more than that in every other state except Maryland. 

ProPublica, an independent, nonprofit news organization, identified the COVID-19 related federal contracts from the Federal Procurement Data System, which includes all contracts worth $10,000 or more. ProPublica searched for contracts tagged with the procurement code for COVID-19 or otherwise started in 2020 and containing “COVID-19” in the description. The organization noted that Department of Defense contracting data is subject to a 90-day delay before it appears in the data, so some DOD contracts may not be included.

The largest contract in Virginia to date and the sixth largest contract nationwide went to a Herndon company, RER Solutions Inc., for data analysis and loan recommendation services provided to the Small Business Administration.  That contract is valued at $500 million.  The SBA is administering several emergency relief programs for small businesses, including the Payroll Protection Program. 

Other COVID-19 related contracts awarded to Virginia companies went for services such as telecommunications, networking, hardware and software to help federal agencies convert to teleworking and arrange virtual meetings, as well as for personal protective equipment and other supplies necessitated by the pandemic.  For example, Atlantic Diving Supply Inc. of Sterling has received 17 contracts valued at a total of $1.46 million to provide gloves, hand sanitizer, goggles, surgical gowns and other protective gear to a number of federal agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service, the Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Marshals Service.

A number of companies have also received contracts for cleaning services in the case of a COVID-19 outbreak at a federal building. Among those was Madison Taylor Inc. of Nokesville, which received a contract valued at $17,000 for cleaning services from the Secret Service in case of an outbreak at its headquarters.

American Type Culture Collection in Manassas has received three contracts worth $43.8 million for research and storage and processing of samples related to the virus and testing.  And Deloitte Consulting LLP of Alexandria has received 12 contracts worth $33.6 million for a variety of services, including a $15.9 million contract with the Centers for Disease Control for "COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration tracking."

Following is a complete list of Northern Virginia companies that have received COVID-19 related contracts valued for at least $1.
