Government contractor

A government contractor is a company (privately owned or publicly traded but not a state-owned enterprise)  either for profit or non-profit  that produces goods or services under contract for the government.[1] Some communities are largely sustained by government contracting activity; for instance, much of the economy of Northern Virginia consists of government contractors employed directly or indirectly by the federal government of the United States.[2]
