On behalf of the Northrop Grumman Corporate Global Supplier Diversity Program (GSDP), I welcome you to our website. The GSDP program office is designed to expand subcontracting opportunities for all classes of small business concerns, including small disadvantaged, women-owned, historically underutilized business zones, veteran, service-disabled veteran owned, Alaska Native Corporations, Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT), disability owned, historically black colleges, universities and minority institutions.

Northrop Grumman utilizes Small Business Liaison Officers (SBLOs) as advocates for small businesses. These individuals are the first points of contact for anyone interested in doing business with Northrop Grumman. The SBLOs provide direction to potential small business suppliers and work to ensure that these firms have access to the requesting organizations and are aware of current subcontracting opportunities. In addition, SBLOs participate in outreach events focused on identifying new suppliers who have the potential to become Northrop Grumman team members. Our ultimate objective is to ensure that capable small businesses of all types receive meaningful subcontracting opportunities with Northrop Grumman. Please enjoy your visit.
