November 12, 2019 | Washington, D.C.

 

On November 12th, General Dynamics Mission Systems hosted the Small Business Partnership Forum event. This event aimed to further integrate our small business partners and introduce them to new opportunities available within our organization; thus allowing us to successfully support our government customers.

During the conference, participants heard from General Dynamics Mission Systems executives, government small business agency representatives and small business advocates on ways to improve and promote small business participation in government contracting.

This year’s conference also focused on communicating improvements to General Dynamics Mission Systems Supply Chain Management processes to our small business partners (Current and Prospective). Additionally, some of our select large business partners attended, providing further networking opportunities.

This event was key to developing our supplier solutions to include supplier risk, supplier relationships and systems and solutions management, we ask that small businesses mature with us, and continue to aid us in meeting our objectives.
