Supplier Diversity

We are building an inclusive culture

Raytheon strives to provide an inclusive environment and opportunities for small, minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned (including service disabled veterans), lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)-owned, disability-owned, and HUBZone businesses.

Raytheon also seeks to provide an inclusive environment for historically black colleges, universities, and minority institutions to participate in the procurement of technical, engineering, and research services.

To that end, Raytheon is committed to a diverse supply base that reflects the demographics and values of our Company, customers, and the communities in which we operate.


Raytheon is an industry leader in working with small businesses to bring innovative technologies and solutions to federal programs. Led by Engineering and in collaboration with Supply Chain, Raytheon partners with small businesses both through awarding subcontracts and through federally funded programs such as Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) and Rapid Innovation Fund (RIF).

  1. Now that I have registered, what happens next?

    Raytheon employees will access this system to search for sources when new requirements arise. Based on a keyword search your company profile may be accessed and reviewed. Please ensure that your profile includes all of your company's capabilities. You should visit the site periodically to update your profile.

  2. Does my company need to be certified to do business with Raytheon?

    As a prime contractor to the U.S. Government, Raytheon complies with the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) certification guidelines.

    If you are a small, disadvantaged business or a small business located in a HUB-Zone, you must be certified through the SBA in order for Raytheon to demonstrate compliance with federal acquisition regulations regarding contracting with small businesses.

    If you are a small business, woman-owned small business, veteran-owned or service disabled veteran-owned small business, you can self-certify as to your business size.

    Raytheon relies on the PRO-Net/Central Contractor Registration (CCR) for business size verification, therefore it is recommended that all small businesses register on the CCR website.

    Raytheon also recommends minority-owned businesses obtain certification through their local councils of the National Minority Supplier Development Council and women-owned businesses obtain certification through one of the local Women Business Enterprise Council affiliations.

  3. How can I find out whether I qualify as a small business?

    The Small Business Administration's Table of Small Business Size Standards define whether a business entity is small. For information on size standards, visit the U.S. Small Business Administration "Office of Size Standards" website.
