Our collective experience and innovative ideas are key to jointly building business in the following areas:

  • National Security

  • Homeland Security
  • Logistics and Product Support

  • Health
  • Engineering
  • Space and Earth Sciences

"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.
