Supply Chain Excellence
Our suppliers are partners in bringing our values to life
They help us fulfill our commitment to being good corporate citizens and employing sustainable business practices. We work with them to ensure socially responsible performance and good environmental stewardship as part of our corporate responsibility efforts.
General Dynamics takes a proactive, long-term approach to our global supply chain to meet customers’ needs for quality, timely products. We have developed best-in-class supply chain relationships and core processes, working across all businesses to maintain world-class performance and continued value.
For example, our online supplier registration portal helps our businesses better identify potential suppliers and share information across the company.
Supply Chain Management Council
We strive to further enhance our efforts through our Supply Chain Management Council, which includes experts from across our businesses. Members meet regularly to share ideas and best practices, leverage resources and create shared technologies and processes. The Council’s work ensures we capture the value created by our supply chain departments throughout the company.
Finally, General Dynamics is committed to working with diverse businesses. 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
