Leidos has created what it is calling the Leidos Alliance Partner Network as a new way for the company to work with its supplier base.
Leidos wants to drive innovation and improve performance on programs as well as build efficiency,” according to a company release.
The program has three levels:
- Corporate Strategic Partner -- true collaborators with strong technical capabilities and a well-established relationship with Leidos.
- Technology Alliance Partner -- close company allies with experience and expertise.
- Emerging Technology Partner -- known associates with “significant interest from the organization."
“The Leidos Alliance brings together our key suppliers to forge a new avenue to achieve technological milestones and efficiencies that support our current and future customers," said Bob Gemmill, Leidos' vice president of strategic sourcing. "The program highlights the importance of our supplier base to the company and emphasizes the value we place on our key program partners."
With the launch, Leidos named Dell-EMC as its first corporate strategic partner.
McAfee, Amazon Web Services, NetApp, HPE, Cisco and Juniper were named technology alliance partners.
Emerging technology partners will be named at a later date, Leidos said.
