Making a Difference

It is Lockheed Martin policy from the top that its business areas will conduct socioeconomic subcontracting programs in recognition of compelling moral, social and economic necessity. It is also the corporation's policy to facilitate the achievement of its negotiated subcontracting goals by developing the capabilities of, and pursuing opportunities to award subcontracts and other procurements to small and small disadvantaged businesses, HUBZone, women- and veteran-owned businesses, and service disabled veteran-owned businesses. Our program also promotes the utilization of suppliers with disabilities, the LGBT community, historically black and tribally owned colleges and universities, and other minority institutions as well as those we work with globally.
