COMMITMENT TO SMALL BUSINESS
Peraton strongly believes that a key element of our supplier base — and a fundamental part of the Peraton business model — is the small business community. More than 54 percent of our subcontracted services and procured products go to small business.
As part of our supply chain management process, we focus on driving business to our approved vendors, directly contributing to regional and economic growth and enabling small businesses to enter the global market.
We demonstrate our commitment to advancing the development of small business by providing partnering opportunities and mentoring across all small business socioeconomic categories:
- Small Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB)
- Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB)
- HUBZone Small Businesses (HUBZone)
- Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSB)
- Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB)

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
Peraton is committed to providing a diverse, collaborative, and inclusive working environment for all employees. We have the same commitment for our small business suppliers. Our business outcomes, customer solutions, and community partnerships are better as a result of the unique backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences our suppliers bring to Peraton.
