Supplier Diversity & Business Philosophy

At Leonardo DRS we are strongly committed to supporting the Small Business Administration’s initiatives for small business participation in federal procurements. We believe that by extending maximum practicable opportunities to small businesses to offer their products and services to Leonardo DRS, we will accomplish our core business strategy of improving supplier diversity and creating a distinct competitive advantage.

Leonardo DRS recognizes that subcontracting within the federal procurement market can be a significant challenge for small businesses while, at the same time, it is often the first opportunity small businesses have to get started in this market. Leonardo DRS is interested in building relationships with Small Business, Women-Owned Small Business, Small Disadvantaged Business (including Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions), Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Small Business, Veteran-Owned Small Business, and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business concerns. In addition, we are interested in building relationships with high technology small businesses, as well as with Alaska Native Corporations, Native American Owned, and Indian Tribe Owned Small Business Concerns.

Leonardo DRS is interested to build partnerships with high technology small businesses, especially those certified as Small Disadvantaged Business (includes socio-economic disadvantaged minority groups); HUBZone small businesses; Woman‐Owned Business; Veteran-Owned Small businesses; Veteran‐Owned Small businesses and Service Disabled Veteran‐Owned concerns.

Leonardo DRS is committed to providing the broadest possible opportunity for participation to small business concerns that share our high standards of quality, service, timeliness, and safety at a competitive cost.

As Leonardo DRS business interests expand and adapt to today’s demanding challenges, we are committed to ensuring that our goal of supplier diversity remains an integral part of our corporate procurement processes and that it becomes a commitment for all employees of Leonardo DRS.
