Data and resolution details. This question asks about the number of DoD subcontracts for scientific and technical development services to Northern California-based companies as a percentage of all DoD subcontracts for scientific and technical development services. The historical and forecasted values represent contracts over the previous 12 months. This question resolves based on data from Bloomberg Government available 90 days after the end of each forecast period. Bloomberg Government collates data from Sam.gov (formerly the Federal Procurement Data System). Subcontracts are for "scientific and technical development services" if they are categorized under NAICS 5417. A company is based in Northern California if the first three digits of its zip code are 940-961.
