Dell Breaks Into Top Tier Of Government IT Suppliers

Government market research firm Input placed Dell in eighth position in a market that reached $17 billion in 2004 for the top 10 suppliers combined. Dell garnered $957,066, Input said. The top position was nailed down by Northrop Grumman Corp., which racked up $3,198,547.

Input released the figures from its ranking of the top 150 federal IT suppliers to the federal government. Input said federal IT suppliers received more than $36 billion of the estimated $50 billion spent by the federal government in the 2004 fiscal year.

"Big contract wins, strategic acquisitions, homeland defense programs, and wartime spending were all key factors in determining placement on the Input Federal IT 150 list," said Kevin Plexico, Input's executive vice president of information services, in a statement. "Homeland defense and wartime spending provided an economic boost for many companies outside of just the very large, established defense players."

The complete top 10 list, in order: Northrop Grumman Corp., Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), Lockheed Martin Corp., General Dynamics Corp., EDS, Computer Sciences Corp., Raytheon Co., Dell, Booze Allen Hamilton, and IBM.
