Our suppliers play a critical role in our ability to deliver the best-in-class products and services our customers expect.
We're looking for suppliers that will help us meet time, quality, cost and technical performance requirements — with an unfaltering focus on our customers' needs and a shared commitment to the values that set General Dynamics apart.
Supply Chain Excellence
We have developed best-in-class supply chain relationships and core processes. And, we work across all our businesses to ensure we maintain our performance and value across the supply chain. One example is our online supplier registration portal, which helps our businesses better identify potential suppliers and share information throughout GD.
We continue to enhance our efforts through our Supply Chain Management Council (SCMC), which includes experts from across our business who frequently meet to share ideas and best practices, leverage resources and create shared technologies and processes. The work of the Council ensures we capture the value created by our supply-chain departments throughout the business.
We partner with small disadvantaged businesses, women-owned small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, SBA-certified HUBZone small businesses, Native American-owned small businesses, minority owned companies and Ability One organizations.
We are widely recognized for our efforts to develop and support a diverse supplier base, including:
- U.S. Department of Defense Nunn-Perry awards in recognition of outstanding Mentor-Protégé teams
- U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Corporate Champion and Corporate Achievement awards from the Center for Veterans Enterprise
- U.S. Department of Justice Small Business Awards
