L3Harris Supplier Code of Conduct

Gifts and Gratuities

Aerojet Rocketdyne employees are not permitted to accept gifts or gratuities from any supplier for themselves or for their families. Aerojet Rocketdyne employees are not permitted to take advantage of their position to obtain discounts on procurement of articles for personal use. This is construed by Aerojet Rocketdyne as a gratuity.

Contractual Authority

Procurement representatives are the only individuals authorized to:

  • Place orders for goods or services with a supplier.
  • Commit AR to any contractual arrangement with a supplier.

Commitments or changes made by representatives of other AR organizations are not valid. While supplier interface and technical interchange are a part of doing business, the purchase of goods or services, or the commitment of AR funds by a person not having authority to do so, is a violation of AR policy. In all cases, technical advice or assistance must be provided only with the prior knowledge of a cognizant Procurement representative.

Source Selection

AR will typically provide a written solicitation (e.g., Request for Quotations (RFQ)). AR prefers use of the Oracle ™ iSupplier Portal. Supplier price quotations are to be submitted only to Procurement representatives. RFQs include all of the terms and conditions expected to apply to the resulting PO.

Purchase Orders

Acceptance of a Purchase Order (PO) constitutes a contract between AR and the Supplier. The PO contains all of the terms and conditions that apply to performance of the PO. AR requests a signed copy of the PO or written acknowledgment. AR prefers use of the Oracle™ iSupplier Portal.
