Washington, D.C. (July 2, 2022) — Torch Technologies today announced it has been named one of the top 200 federal contractors according to Bloomberg Government in the eleventh annual BGOV200, based on fiscal year 2021 data for unclassified, prime contracts awarded across all U.S. federal government agencies.

The 11th annual BGOV200 report is the culmination of extensive data cleansing and analysis of areas such as company hierarchy, contract title, and agency assignments. Data integrity makes this the premier source for government contract practitioners trying to make sense of shifts in the competitive landscape.

Bloomberg Government’s analysis finds that fiscal 2021’s spending of $649 billion marks the first time in six years that a decrease in government contract spending has occurred, a total contracting dollar decrease of $37 billion compared to the 2020 high of $687 billion. With less government spending comes a more competitive marketplace to find success in.

“We’re honored to recognize Torch Technologies as one of the top federal contractors for fiscal 2021,” said Kerry Lenahan, General Manager and Head of Government Contracting Solutions, Bloomberg Government. “The 11th edition is a testament to Bloomberg Government’s continued commitment to deliver critical market intelligence that helps clients best understand how to position themselves in this competitive market.”
