Supply Chain Management

We utilize a network of 5,000+ suppliers across the firm, including thousands of small and medium-sized enterprises. Our suppliers are important partners, and we often develop long-term relationships with them. Our Supplier Code of Conduct guides these relationships and expresses our expectations on issues such as human rights, cybersecurity, and data privacy. The terms of the Supplier Code of Conduct are included in select supplier contracts. See page 16 for how we integrate DEI into our procurement process and page 39 for how cybersecurity and data privacy are considered throughout our supply chain.

Additionally, the firm participates in an industry-recognized mentor-protégé program with suppliers. This program strengthens our supplier engagement and helps our team combine resources, stability, and experience to improve our protégés' capabilities and help them grow. Learn more about these efforts on our website.

Looking ahead, we will continue to work with suppliers that not only offer the best services or products in their field, but also manage their ESG risks and opportunities effectively. To do this, we are considering additional ways to integrate ESG criteria into our sourcing requirements and processes. These actions will inform our journey to set future goals regarding spending with diverse suppliers across issues and improving our overall ESG performance. We are also further highlighting how we identify and engage with suppliers located in communities where Booz Allen has a significant footprint. Finally, we will work more closely with our supplier base on adhering to our Code and increasing their transparency to improve the rate of supplier certifications.
