PAE's Small Business Commitment

PAE has a firm and longstanding commitment to provide mutually beneficial subcontracting and partnering opportunities to the small and small disadvantaged business communities (to include woman owned, HUBZone, veteran and service disabled veteran owned small businesses). This commitment is designed to take full advantage of the unique perspective and capabilities offered by small businesses in the global environment in which PAE operates. We firmly believe innovation and creative solutions result from having a diverse set of partners on the PAE team, and we have found that quite often small businesses can provide rapid response and flexibility to short-notice tasks. Additionally, we realize that small businesses represent an important component of the vision for our U.S. government customers. With that focus, PAE is committed to providing opportunities for small business concerns to become PAE suppliers and teammates in a competitive and fair environment.

Small Businesses, Small Disadvantaged Businesses and other Small Business Concerns looking to conduct business with PAE, should contact our Small Business Liaison Office directly.
