    Hi Lucie - Thank you for your question.

    USAspending.gov is the official source for spending data for the U.S. government, it would not necessarily translate to defense-related revenue of US companies.

    The data on USAspending.gov is reported directly by the agencies or from the agencies’ financial systems, whereas the data on company websites may be coming from other sources.

    Contracts can have multiple transactions that obligate funds over the life of the contract. Sometimes the work is delivered for less than the obligated amount and a negative obligation (de-obligation) is entered to show the amount that was not spent. This does not mean the overall value of the contract was negative.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    Dear Amanda, 

    Thank you very much for your response, it is highly appreciated and very helpful.

    I would be happy to discuss this further in a phone or video call should it be possible from your side. If not, I would understand of course.

    Best regards,
    Lucie
