Coronavirus (COVID-19) Supply Chain Information

Supporting Our Suppliers

The industrial supply chain and the businesses powering it are critical to our nation’s security. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, so too will the ways in which Lockheed Martin supports our suppliers and small business partners.

In the communications below, you will find details concerning our current relief efforts as well as processes and precautionary measures we’ve taken. This page will be updated on an ongoing basis as new information becomes available.


$1.1B+ in Accelerated Department of Defense Progress Payments

From the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Lockheed Martin has been working with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to identify ways to provide critical financial and other support to vulnerable elements of the U.S. defense industrial base. We have flowed all of the accelerated payments received from the Department of Defense to our supply chain – more than $1.1 billion – giving priority to small and vulnerable suppliers, as we continue our efforts to mitigate COVID-19 risks and promote a healthy Defense Industrial Base.

$300-$500M+ in additional Accelerated Payments Weekly

In recent weeks, our acceleration of cash to supply chain partners has ranged from $300 million to $500 million per week. We will continue to assess COVID-19 impacts, working with our U.S. Government partners and suppliers, and accelerate cash to at-risk suppliers and small businesses to ensure that we continue to meet commitments vital to national security.

Rise Up Resources

We are here to help by providing information and resources that can assist you as you rise up during these unprecedented times.

Supply Chain Information

Early identification of risks and open communication are the strongest defense to avoid disruption. Notify your Lockheed Martin procurement representative as quickly as possible if you identify any issues that could cause potential delays in deliveries, transportation or availability of materials, or other impacts. You should include available facts including efforts planned to mitigate potential impact.

Your Lockheed Martin procurement representative may reach out to understand your business continuity plans and sub-tier supplier impacts. Nothing in the communications are intended to alter the terms and conditions of any contract you hold with Lockheed Martin, nor serve as the basis for any claim, adjustment to price or schedule or other legal action.

Best Practices

The following are a collection of statements gathered from CDC and OSHA concerning best practices. Although OSHA has not defined a list specific for manufacturing as of yet, these statements were selected from what OSHA has indicated for similar industries.

  • Implement basic infection prevention measures.
  • Ensure proper facility cleaning.
  • Practice self-distancing.
  • Consider implementing staggered shifts.
  • Make disinfecting wipes, soap, and hand sanitizer readily available throughout manufacturing facilities.
  • CDC and OSHA recommend using a combination of standard precautions, contact precautions, airborne precautions, and eye protection (e.g., goggles or face shields) to protect workers with exposure to the virus.
  • Use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) include: gloves, goggles, face shields, face masks, and respiratory protection, when appropriate. During an outbreak of an infectious disease, such as COVID-19, recommendations for PPE specific to occupations or job tasks may change depending on geographic location, updated risk assessments for workers, and information on PPE effectiveness in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Employers should check the OSHA and CDC websites regularly for updates.
