Hi. Is it okay to say "contracted companies" to mean 2 companies under a mutual contract? I don't know why, but it sounds a little awkward to me.

    Contracted sounds as if someone alse has done the contracting. Perhaps you need "(mutually) contracting companies". That makes it clear that they themselves have signed a contract.
