At Vectrus, our ethical culture serves as the foundation for providing long term value to our stakeholders. Our fundamental goals are to promote an ethical culture, deter inappropriate conduct, and detect potential compliance issues.
Leading the Way
Our values are the glue that holds us together even when everything around us is changing. They are our guiding principles (the givens) that we rely upon to help us accomplish our mission. During our transition into an independent corporation, our employees were polled and asked what was the most important company value. They selected integrity. Based on that input, we made integrity our top value.

We have fully adopted the provisions contained in the DII Model Supplier Code of Conduct for all of our suppliers in an effort to promote DII’s goal of promoting a supplier code to promote consistency between providers.
Supplier Code of Conduct
The Vectrus Supplier Code of Conduct is referenced in our Annual Supplier Certification Form and is provided during purchase requests to new vendors and annually thereafter. Our Supplier Code of Conduct lays out the expectations we have for our suppliers and business partners and demonstrates that we expect the same high standards of conduct from our suppliers and business partners as we do our employees, officers and directors.
