Veco Gives, But What Does It Receive?

Other clear cut examples aren't so easy to come by, but generally speaking Veco has done well for itself securing federal contracts. The company has won National Science Foundation contracts twice. One contract from 2005 was worth $100 million to provide" Arctic research support and logistics services in Alaska, Greenland, the North Pole, Canada, Russia and other Arctic locations." The company has also disclosed other lucrative-looking contracts, though the exact values are unknown.

The question is: How many of those contracts received the helping hand of Sen. Stevens?
