Supply Chain Recognition by Northrop Grumman in SoCal
Local California companies can supply major manufacturers with green alternatives to meet their compliance needs for both environmentally sustainable materials and small business requirements required in federal contracts. Northrop Grumman is one of those Southern California companies that seeks and supports small businesses with green solutions.
Northrop Grumman Corp., a Los Angeles area major manufacturer, recently presented 2009 recognition to 24 employees and 42 suppliers at its annual recognition event in Redondo Beach, California.
Sustainable Communities and Supply Chains
The employees and suppliers were recognized for their outstanding performance and support of the company's Socio-Economic Business Programs.
"The employees and suppliers that were selected to receive World Class Team awards have greatly contributed to the success of Northrop Grumman's Socio-Economic Business Programs. The hard work and dedication that they displayed is truly impressive," said Susan Cote, vice president of contracts, pricing and supply chain.
SEBP programs play a key role in connecting small businesses' capabilities with Northrop Grumman government programs in the supply chain and technical organizations. This can lead to significant business opportunities.
In the 2009 fiscal year, Northrop Grumman awarded $9.78 billion in subcontracts, with small businesses receiving more than $4.6 billion (47.2 percent) of these awards.
