Supplier Diversity

Supplier diversity is a business and social imperative at Raytheon Technologies. Our businesses are Collins Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon Intelligence & Space and Raytheon Missiles & Defense. In order to develop innovative solutions for the complex challenges our customers face, we foster an environment of diversity, equity and inclusion that enables us to attract, retain and develop a diverse supply base.

We provide maximum practicable procurement opportunities for small, minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned, historically underutilized business zone, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)-owned and disability-owned businesses. We also seek to provide opportunities for historically black colleges, universities and minority institutions in the areas of technical, engineering and research services.

We address economic equality in our supply chain by evaluating and analyzing our supplier relationships. We are committed to a diverse supply base that reflects the demographics and values of our company, our customers and the communities in which we operate. Supplier diversity is a key part of Raytheon Technologies’ overall strategic plan to advance diversity, equity and inclusion across the company and beyond.    

To be eligible for award as a small business, an offeror must represent in good faith that it is a small business by ensuring that all NAICS codes for which the offeror can be certified as small are listed on our Annual Offeror Registration Data, Representations and Certifications (CR-003) form.

Get answers to the most frequently asked questions about supplier diversity.
  • What happens after I register in the potential supplier registration portal?
    Upon registering you will receive an email confirmation acknowledging that your information has been added into our system. Raytheon Technologies employees will have access to this system to search for prospective suppliers as sourcing opportunities arise. Be sure to visit the site periodically and update your profile. Supplier profiles should include all of your company’s capabilities. Please note, completing the registration does not guarantee business with Raytheon Technologies but does provide visibility regarding your company's capabilities to our procurement teams.
  • What type of business qualifies for inclusion in our supplier diversity program?
    We welcome all competitive suppliers to support our many requirements at Raytheon Technologies. To participate in our supplier diversity program you must be certified or qualified as a small and/or diverse supplier. Our diverse supply chain enables us to be agile, innovative and cost-competitive as we work together to solve problems and develop solutions addressing our customers' greatest challenges. As a result, we are looking for suppliers who are cost competitive, capable and consistently able to meet or exceed expectations.
  • What certifications are necessary to participate in our supplier diversity program?

    As prime contractors to the U.S. Government, Raytheon Technologies complies with the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) certification and Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) guidelines. If you are a small business located in a HUBZone, your company must be certified through the SBA in order for our aerospace divisions to demonstrate compliance with the FAR regarding contracting with small businesses.

    If you are a small business, woman-owned small business, veteran-owned or service disabled veteran-owned small business, you can self-certify your size and designation on the U.S. SBA System for Award Management.

    Also, Raytheon Technologies recommends that suppliers identifying as minority-owned, woman-owned, veteran-owned, disability-owned or LGBT-owned obtain certification through a third party such as a government agency, National Minority Supplier Development Council, Women Business Enterprise National Council, National Veteran Business Development Council, Disability:IN, National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, or another accredited certifying agency.

  • How do I get SBA certified?

    First you must qualify as a small business. The Small Business Administration’s Table of Small Business Size Standards defines whether a business entity is small. For information on size standards, visit the U.S. Small Business Administration. Then, to apply for certification, you must complete the proper U.S. SBA application forms which are available online.

  • Certification

    Certification validates a diverse or small business person’s ownership, controlling and management stake in a for-profit enterprise. Examples of third-party certification organizations are National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), which certifies minority-owned businesses. Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certifies women-owned businesses. National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) certifies veteran-owned businesses. Disability:IN certifies disability-owned business enterprises. National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) certifies LGBT Business Enterprises.

  • DSBS

    The Dynamic Small Business Search is a search site hosted by the Small Business Administration (SBA).

  • FAR

    Federal Acquisition Regulation was established for the codification and publication of uniform policies and procedures for acquisition by all executive agencies. Key small business sections include Part 19 and Part 52.

  • HUBZone

    The HUBZone program fuels small business growth in historically underutilized business zones with a goal of awarding at least 3% of federal contract dollars to HUBZone-certified companies each year. To qualify, an applicant must:

    •    Be a small business

    •    Be at least 51% owned and controlled by U.S. citizens, a Community Development Corporation, an agricultural cooperative, a Native Hawaiian Organization or an Indian tribe

    •    Have its principal office located in a HUBZone, as certified through the SBA

    •    Have at least 35% of its employees living in a HUBZone

  • GSA

    The General Services Administration (GSA) is an independent agency of the United States government, established in 1949 to help manage and support the basic functioning of federal agencies. The GSA supplies products and communications for U.S. government offices, provides transportation and office space to federal employees, and develops governmentwide cost-minimizing policies, as well as other management tasks.

  • GSA schedules

    GSA Schedules (also referred to as Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) and Federal Supply Schedules) are long-term governmentwide contracts with commercial firms providing federal, state and local government buyers access to more than 11 million commercial supplies (products) and services at volume discount pricing.

  • Mentor-Protégé Program

    The U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Mentor-Protégé Program enhances the capability of small business participants to compete more successfully for federal government contracts. The program encourages private-sector relationships and expands SBA’s efforts to identify and respond to the developmental needs of small business clients. 

    The Department of Defense (DOD) Mentor-Protégé Program assists small disadvantaged business concerns and designated qualifying organizations (protégés) to successfully compete for prime contract and subcontract awards by partnering with large companies (mentors) under individual, project-based agreements.


    The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is the standard used by federal statistical agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy.

    NAICS was developed under the auspices of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and adopted in 1997 to replace the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system. It was developed jointly by the U.S. Economic Classification Policy Committee (ECPC), Statistics Canada, and Mexico's Instituto Nacional de Estadistica y Geografia, to allow for a high level of comparability in business statistics among the North American countries.

    Please refer to the SBA Table of Size Standards to check whether your business is considered small. 

  • SBIR and STTR programs

    Both Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small business to engage in federal research/research development with the potential for commercialization through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR and STTR enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization.
