A government contractor is a private company — either for profit or non-profit — that produces goods or services under contract for the government. Some communities are largely sustained by government contracting activity; for instance, much of the economy of northern Virginia consists of government contractors employed directly or indirectly by the federal government of the United States.

United Kingdom[edit]

Section 12(2) and (3) of the Official Secrets Act 1989 define the expression "government contractor" for the purposes of that Act.
