The Material Acquisition Center Mid-Atlantic Region at Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems-Surface Systems integrates its Small Business Program through all of its business processes. This program has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to meet and even exceed government-mandated goals.
The Material Acquisition Center Mid-Atlantic Region (MAC-MAR) at Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems-Surface Systems (NE&SS-SS) actively maintains an outstanding Small Business Program to comply with government-mandated public law requirements. The group promotes numerous subcontracting, good faith, and mentoring opportunities for small; disadvantaged; minority-owned; women-owned; veteran-owned; and historically underutilized business zones (HubZone) businesses.
Headed by the corporate procurement office, Small Business Councils exist in the Aeronautical Systems, Technology Systems, Spare Systems, and MAC-MAR’s Systems Integration organizations. Sound measuring and reporting mechanisms are in place. Lockheed Martin NE&SS-SS’ program advocates and assists small business growth. The company works with these businesses in conjunction with specific programs to increase their capabilities in a particular area, enabling them to operate more competitively and independently. Strong outreach efforts include trade shows, database and web site searches, and an internal sharing of information within Lockheed Martin NE&SS- SS itself.
