Important Supplier Announcement
We are excited to announce that Leidos is embarking on a digital transformation journey to enhance the way we collaborate with our suppliers. As part of this transformation, we are launching a state-of-the-art Supplier Collaboration Portal powered by Ivalua in mid-November 2023.
In the coming months, we will provide the necessary resources and support to ensure a seamless onboarding experience to the new portal. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].
Our suppliers and subcontractors are critical to our success, and we are committed to teaming with suppliers that best fit our needs and those of our customers. We are especially committed to teaming with our small business partners to leverage their diverse strengths.
If you are interested in doing business with Leidos and would like to market your firm, please select the link below to complete your company profile.
We also encourage small businesses to register in our Supplier Profile Portal to be considered for future opportunities. Registering your company profile does not qualify you as a vendor or guarantee work with Leidos.
Please note: our current portal will remain active through mid-November. Instructions for the new portal and transition activities will be added soon.
Supplier Portal Instructions
Please be specific in describing the Leidos business needs, markets, opportunities, and/or customers you’re uniquely positioned to support. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about Leidos before reaching out.
Our suppliers are vital to the success of Leidos. Our goal is to partner with responsible companies that share both our values and our commitment to high ethical standards. The Leidos Supplier Code of Conduct (the Code) outlines our expectations for suppliers and their employees, personnel, agents, and subcontractors. Suppliers are expected to adhere to the Code and uphold our value of integrity while conducting business with and/or on behalf of Leidos. If you believe that Leidos or any of its employees or agents has acted improperly or unethically, please report such behavior to the Leidos Ethics Hotline (855) 753-4367.
We are committed to conducting business with the highest integrity and business ethics and we encourage our suppliers to read the Anti-Kickback Letter from Bob Gemmill, SVP & Chief Procurement Officer.
SLICS is a Leidos web-based claim submission tool hosted by our partner Unanet. Suppliers using the SLICS tool are required to log their Labor and Expense claims on a daily, or weekly, basis to be approved for processing by 4:00PM Eastern each Friday.
Our Small Business Profile Database allows small businesses the opportunity to submit or update their company's capabilities and past performance information directly to our line organizations. Additionally, we offer the following links to the Small Business Program sites of our customers. These links will provide important updates regarding small business contracting and subcontracting regulations.
We believe that a focus on inclusion and diversity across Leidos improves team performance, influences innovative business strategies and drives positive results by advancing our workforce, cultivating an inclusive workplace and advancing our reputation in the marketplace. This extends through our supply chain, where the inclusion of minority-owned and operated businesses is fundamental to our ability to meet the important missions of our customers.
To underline our commitment to supplier diversity Leidos is partnering with national bodies who represent diverse minorities who add unique perspectives to the solutions we provide for our customers at all levels.
Our first national partnership, NGLCC is the business voice of the LGBT community. For more information visit nglcc.org.
The questionnaire below is meant only for contractors working with our Energy, Infrastructure & Automation or Climate, Energy & Environment operations.
A sub-contractor's safety qualifications must be reviewed and approved by the Leidos Corporate Health & Safety department prior to issuing a sub-contract or task order for field work.
Leidos is committed to advancing Global Citizenship in all aspects of our business, including our procurement activities. We understand the potential effects our procurement decisions have both on the environment and in our communities, and we support operating in a socially and environmentally responsible manner including the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights. Principles of sustainability are woven into the fabric of Leidos culture through our mission, vision, and corporate values. We are committed to a management approach that protects the environment by avoiding, mitigating, and remediating negative impacts of our operations. We expect our suppliers to comply with all local environmental, health, and safety regulations and encourage them to join us in protecting the environment by informing us of environmentally preferable product offerings, using processes, materials, and transportation methods that support sustainability of the environment throughout the supply chain (e.g., applying energy-efficient, environmentally friendly technologies to reduce waste, and emissions to air, water, and soil). Further, we expect our suppliers to not engage in the discrimination of employees or discriminate in the selection of lower-tier suppliers on the basis of sex, race, color, age, religion, creed, sexual orientation, national origin or citizenship, ancestry, disability, marital status, gender identity, military or veteran status, or any other basis protected by law.

"Small Business is Good Business"
At Leidos, working with small businesses is more than a commitment or strategy. It's good business and supported at the highest levels of management. Our commitment to small businesses is an integral part of our foundation since Leidos was once a small business. See our History & Timeline.
Teaming with small businesses is fundamental to our business objectives:
- Being competitive
- Growing our market share
- Increasing customer loyalty
This focus reinforces our commitment to our customers, our employee owners and our communities, while assisting small businesses.
To ensure continued company success and growth opportunities to small businesses, Leidos focuses on the following:
- A proactive corporate-led "Small Business Development Program" responsible for marketing and outreach/awareness activities.
- Fostering strategic relationships with small businesses that lead to subcontracting as well as prime contracting opportunities.

First- tier small business suppliers and subcontractors may request past performance evaluations for services or products provided on a Leidos prime contract within the past three years.
