Gov. Jim Doyle Tuesday announced the winners of the annual Governor’s Federal Contractor Awards.
The awards recognize state firms that show significant growth in federal sales, and are recognized as outstanding suppliers to the federal government.
In 2009, Wisconsin moved to 16th in the ranking for federal contract funds with $9.2 billion in federal sales.
“I’m proud that Wisconsin continues to attract an increasing number of federal contract funds each year,” Doyle said in a press release. “This growth is a testament to our commitment to hard work and focus on producing high-end, quality products.”
