- 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.
- 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.
