Small Business Resources

General Dynamics Mission Systems is committed to establish mutually beneficial relationships by actively seeking small businesses, including those owned by minorities, women, and veterans, capable of providing products and/or services in our supply chain.

The provisions of Public Law 95-507, as amended, and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 19, establishes requirements for participation in federal contracting opportunities by:

  • Small business (SB) concerns, including Native American small businesses
  • Small disadvantaged business (SDB) concerns owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals
  • Small business concerns owned and controlled by women (WOSB)
  • SBA-certified HUBZone (Historically under-utilized business zones) small businesses
  • Veteran-owned (VO) and service disabled veteran-owned (SDVO) small businesses

To be considered for opportunities, we recommend that you register your company with General Dynamics. This information will be kept in a database to identify possible candidates for future opportunities that may arise and without obligation of either you or General Dynamics.

If you would like to speak to a member of our Supply Chain team, please contact us at: or visit us at and upcoming supplier event.

  • Select Sign Up For The Innovation Sourcing Network,

  • Select Create An Account,

  • Type “I agree” to accept the Terms of Use

  • Fill in your registration information.

General Dynamics will contact you when an opportunity becomes available.

We recommend you fill out the following sections completely:

  • CAPABILITIES: In addition to using the preselected lists of capabilities and customers, be sure to add unique and descriptive key words and customer details, in the available free text fields (e.g., network engineering; not IT).

  • DOCUMENTS: Uploading corporate briefings, brochures or line cards and other capability documents is highly recommended (Note: documents cannot contain more than 50 characters in their name and no special characters. You may need to rename documents you want to upload).


What You Can Expect

If there is a need for your products/services you may be contacted by buying personnel directly or may receive a Request for Information or Request for Quotation (RFQ). We may not have an immediate requirement that matches your capabilities but when a need for your product or service arises your organization may be considered.

If you propose to furnish production (as opposed to overhead) material, then you may be required to undergo a Quality Assurance survey to assess your quality system. If your quality system is approved by other contractors (e.g., ISO 9000 approvals), then please let us know. If needed, arrangements for the survey are coordinated through the responsible buyer. Your process must be found satisfactory before you can be considered as a source for production material.

Thank you for your interest in doing business with General Dynamics. We look forward to working with you in our efforts to achieve a strong and diverse supplier base.
