DRS Procurements and Supplier Diversity

DRS is committed to partnering with vendors that are invested in our mutual success. This page is where DRS posts available opportunities for vendor bidding, also called a Request for Proposal or RFP. Find out here how you can do business with us, review current and forecasted procurements, and read our goals for supplier diversity.

DRS Supplier Diversity Program

We are committed to ensuring that public money is spent equitably in the private sector by creating meaningful opportunities for small and diverse businesses to work with us. Our 2024 goals are to spend at least:

  • 6% with minority and women-owned businesses
  • 1% with veteran-owned businesses

We encourage the participation of small, veteran-owned, minority-owned and women’s business enterprises. These resources may assist you in responding to procurements:
