NGC ‘Mentors’ Non-Profit to Better Assist Disabled

Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) has signed a U.S. Department of Defense mentor-protégé agreement with MVLE, a nonprofit group that provides jobs and job training for persons with disabilities. Northrop Grumman developed the mentor-protégé relationship with MVLE to assist in its development of federal contracting opportunities, as well as infrastructure development that will help provide more employment opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.

“This mentor-protégé agreement allows Northrop Grumman the  opportunity to assist an AbilityOne agency in transitioning into the realm of federal contracting. This program goes beyond the development of contracting activities by allowing people with severe disabilities the opportunity to become gainfully employed, ” said Susan Coté, Northrop Grumman corporate vice president of contracts, pricing and supply chain.
