The CSA, whose president Christopher Jahn, was the Chief of Staff for Wyoming Republican Craig Thomas, is an influential organization of Military (and other) government contractors, with $40 billion in contracts.

- Kellogg Brown and Root (a Halliburton subsidiary)
- L-3 Communications
- Lockheed Martin

- Pacific Architects and Engineers, Inc.
- The Shaw Group, Inc.
- Wackenhut Corporation
