    The Pentagon saves more than three times as much money when companies compete, the AP analysis showed. Yet more than $242 million in federal contracts -- representing more than one-fourth of the military's stimulus contract spending so far -- has been awarded under the recovery program through no-bid contracts for repairs and maintenance.
