The Booz Allen Partner in Ethics Program represents the firm’s commitment to encourage business ethics through its supply chain by providing benefits to entities doing business with the firm that have instituted values-based ethics programs. This is part of our commitment to our clients to embody our Core Values in all that we do.
This voluntary program is available to all subcontractors and significant vendors (i.e., companies with whom the firm anticipates repetitive or expected ordering activity of $150,000 or more over an annual period). The program promotes contracting with organizations that share our commitment to upholding the highest standards of integrity by providing them:
To be eligible for the Booz Allen Partner in Ethics program, the only criterion is that you have a formal ethics program that you are willing to document to the firm, or in the case of small businesses, are willing to adopt applicable standards of conduct, reporting tools, and training for your staff performing work for Booz Allen. While participation in this program is currently optional, we encourage suppliers interested in doing business with us to embrace this opportunity to demonstrate the strong ethical values that have been the foundation of Booz Allen’s success over the past 98 years.
To be considered for the Booz Allen Partner in Ethics Program, you will need to complete a questionnaire and provide supporting documentation of your ethics program including your code of ethics and other supporting details and applicable documents.
Existing suppliers will receive this questionnaire with their annual representation and certification package. New suppliers will receive the questionnaire either as part of their Request for Proposal package or at the time of award.
Please consult the questionnaire for terms and conditions for this program including handling of confidential or proprietary information submitted as part of the application process.
Once your documentation is received we will review your submission. Upon approval, you will receive written confirmation (via e-mail), sent to the designated representative as provided in your submission, of acceptance as a Booz Allen Partner in Ethics Supplier.
New or existing suppliers without an established ethics program regardless of participation in the Booz Allen Partner in Ethics Program are encouraged to implement one appropriate for their business/size. As a member of the Defense Industry Initiative on Business Ethics and Conduct (DII), Booz Allen encourages subcontractors and suppliers to use the DII toolkit for Creating and Maintaining an Effective Ethics and Business Conduct Program as a roadmap to do so. You can access this toolkit at http://dii.org/training-and-resources.
