Pentagon contracts little changed in August
The U.S. Defense Department awarded $17.6 billion in contracts in August, little changed from July and one-third less than the same month a year ago. Only one award topped $1 billion in value: an extension of a current deal to upgrade electronics in U.S. weapons systems and provide other engineering services, held by seven defense contractors including Lockheed Martin Corp. and Boeing Co.
