Federal agencies have distributed most of the pandemic relief funding through grants, direct payments, and loans. However, the agencies have also signed contracts to buy goods and services related to the pandemic. Many of the top contracts were for COVID-19 vaccines and testing. For example, the Department of Health and Human Services gave contracts to companies for its Increasing Community Access to Testing program. In some instances, agencies used existing contracts to be able to buy the goods and services quickly. Here, we explore the top ten pandemic contract recipients and top five agencies with the most contracts.
