NextGen Earns 2018 Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon


NextGen Federal Systems was recently awarded the 2018 Raytheon Supplier Excellence Program EPIC Award for its outstanding performance, contribution and support to Raytheon programs. Only the highest performing Suppliers are awarded this honor.

“As we continue to evolve and advance relationships with our suppliers, it is critical that we recognize those partners whose commitment and customer focus is lock step with our own,” said David Wilkins, Vice President of Contracts and Supply Chain for Raytheon. “The Supplier Excellence Program Awards acknowledge the suppliers who share our vision of customer success through trusted, innovative solutions.”

Recipients are recognized in two categories for their achievements: Premier and EPIC. Premier Awards recognize a supplier’s support and commitment to affordability, technical, business management and/or partnership. EPIC Awards recognize a supplier’s overall Excellence in Performance, Innovation & Collaboration for one or more Raytheon business.

The Supplier Excellence Program supports Raytheon’s strategic sourcing which enables:

• Enhanced engagement and communication
• Quantitative and qualitative measurement of supplier performance
• Recognition and rewards for top performers who contribute to both Customer and Raytheon success

“Raytheon has been a great partner since very early stages of NextGen’s startup,” said NextGen’s Senior Vice President, Chetan Desai. “At this stage we are working with two Raytheon Business Units.”

NextGen has been supporting Raytheon for the past five years as a key contributor to its Electronic Warfare Planning Management Tool (EWPMT) program supporting the Army at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD.

“Raytheon is an elite Engineering firm and being associated with and recognized by Raytheon bodes well for our growing company”, said NextGen CEO, Jay Reddy.
