Raytheon announces mentor-protege agreements with ISYS Technologies and Equipment Links

LOS ANGELES, Calif. ñ March 5, Raytheon announced mentor-protege agreements with small businesses ISYS Technologies and Equipment Links, Inc., at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s High Tech Conference in Los Angeles.

The agreements demonstrate Raytheon’s commitment to helping small businesses gain contracting expertise and develop core competencies necessary for doing business with U.S. government customers.

Raytheon’s Intelligence and Information Systems vice president of Supply Chain, Sylvia Courtney, presented the agreements to ISYS and Equipment Links at the conference.

“Raytheon is committed to offering maximum opportunities for small and disadvantaged businesses to contribute and succeed within our key customer programs,” said Courtney. “Teaming with small businesses has been a successful strategy for us, one that allows Raytheon to provide our customers with the best value products and services available.”

Raytheon and ISYS Technologies signed a two-year U.S. Air Force-sponsored mentor-protege program agreement to work on several Raytheon programs.

Headquartered in Littleton, Colo., ISYS Technologies is a woman-owned small business focused on providing information technology and engineering services to government customers. As a protege, ISYS will leverage Raytheon’s expertise and resources to enhance its cyber capabilities, including cybersecurity skills and certification. The companies will work together to deliver complex cybersecurity solutions for NASA, the U.S. Air Force and the Department of Defense.

Equipment Links, a veteran-owned small business, entered into a mentor-protege agreement through Raytheon’s IIS Supplier Diversity program. Based in Henderson, Nev., Equipment Links provides asset management solutions, specializing in efficiency-driven reliability centered maintenance (RCM) processes. Equipment Links will help establish RCM processes across Raytheon’s customer programs and pursuits for NASA, DoD and other federal civilian agencies.

Raytheon’s IIS Supplier Diversity program strives to provide an inclusive environment to do business with small, minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned (including service disabled veterans) and HUBZone businesses. The mentor-protege relationship connects large business, prime contractors with small businesses in a mutually beneficial agreement through the Supplier Diversity program. IIS currently has two other additional active mentor-protege programs, sponsored by the National Geospatial Agency.

ISYS Technologies began operations in 1989. The company reorganized as a women-owned small business in 2002 and shifted its focus to providing services to the government, including Information Technology and Engineering Services to the Department of Defense and several federal civilian agencies.

Equipment Links was founded in 1996. The veteran-owned company helps its government customers properly identify and implement preventive and predictive maintenance opportunities, as well as identify and eliminate all behaviors that contribute to delays and waste within the maintenance workforce.
