Suppliers must be invited to bid on corporate agreements. Requests to participate may not result in an invitation to bid.

The Aerospace and Defense Global Trading Exchange
Lockheed Martin has partnered with Exostar to provide greater security and a simplified process for non-Lockheed Martin suppliers, partners and customers needing access to Lockheed Martin external-facing systems such as Lockeed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P) and OneAero.
Exostar helps conquer the complexity and mitigate the risk associated with sharing information with external partners. To gain access to these systems a company profile and specific user account(s) must first be established with Exostar using their Managed Access Gateway (MAG). MAG then handles authentication of established users and vendor profile management. Together, these services provide controlled access to the Lockheed Martin systems via a single sign-on process. Suppliers will access this portal to retrieve their purchase order documents, participate in bids/reverse auctions and other business activities.

Lockheed Martin is committed to timely payments of their subcontracts.

Lockheed Martin is a proud supporter of the United States Small Business Administration's SupplierPay initiative. SupplierPay is a partnership with the private sector to strengthen small businesses by increasing their working capital, so they can grow their businesses and hire more workers. SupplierPay requires federal agencies to expedite payments to small business contractors with the goal of paying within 15 days. Since taking the pledge in 2014, Lockheed Martin has been committed to making payments 15 days after receipt of goods, services and invoice to small businesses.
As your company’s size status is registered in our Exostar system, you do not need to take any action to pursue accelerated payment. Please note, accelerated payments will not be provided to suppliers using our VIP system as those payment terms are negotiated based on value and benefit to our customers. In addition, making accelerated payments does not change the negotiated payment terms or any other terms of contracts between our companies.
The goals of the U.S. government and of Lockheed Martin are to support our country’s small businesses with the financial support needed to empower growth and strengthen financial stability. If you have a question concerning accelerated payments, please contact your Lockheed Martin procurement representative or contact us here.
