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 encouraging 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 that small businesses need to get started in this market. Leonardo DRS is interested to build partnerships with high technology small businesses, including Minority Business (which include Small Disadvantaged Business and HUBZone Empowerment businesses); Woman‐Owned Business; Veteran-Owned Small businesses; Veteran‐Owned Small businesses (which include Service Disabled Veteran‐Owned concerns); and Native American businesses. We are also looking for partnerships with institutions that support these small businesses such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities; and Minority Institutions that support Native American, Women and other disadvantaged people.
Leonardo DRS is committed to providing the broadest possible opportunity for participation in our federal procurement 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.
