Close to $4M in fed contracts + Roch. area

Here's a few contract announcements that rolled out from the feds this month.Financial_money_roll

 By my rough estimate, this short list adds up to about $3.7 million (Yeah, the bulk is from the Mayo Clinic one) rolling into Rochester and about $55,000 worth of dairy products coming in.

I think I recently read a factoid that one out of seven people in the U.S. get a paycheck from the government.

Looking at all of the money that rolls out each week from the feds, it wouldn't surprise me if that was true.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 -- Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn., won a $3,305,364 federal contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md., for the development of multiplexed screening assays for newborn screening.

This news doesn't belong in the business section. It belongs in Politics. Thanks for at least not crediting certain politicians for bringing home the pork and bankrupting our nation,.

Joe...why doesn't this belong in the business section? As 2 of the 3 recipients of these contracts are local businesses that many people have a vested interest in.

Real businesses make money without government.

Joe, did you even read what these contracts are for? In your opinion, no private business should ever provide services to government entities because they're paid for with *gasp* government money? Shouldn't Crenlo/Emcor be proud that the US military has chosen them to provide their pilot consoles?

The government is a customer. How is the government differant from any other customer of theirs?
