Ethics and social responsibility

Perspecta / About us / Ethics and social responsibility


When Perspecta was formed, we envisioned a company unlike any other. A company with employees that would raise the bar in everything they did. Our purpose and values are unique to the people we hire and the work that we do.

Perspecta employees bring these values with them to work every day:

  • Respect: We treat each other with respect
  • Accountability: We are accountable for our actions
  • Integrity: We demonstrate integrity in everything we do
  • Success: We bring our customers success through mission focus, commitment and innovation
  • Empowerment: We are empowered to drive results

These values define who we are. Integrity and accountability are revealed through our actions, with every decision we make. Our code of conduct, The Standard, is an extension of our values and reflects our continued commitment to ethical business practices and regulatory compliance.

Reporting an ethical issue

Employees can seek guidance or report a concern by contacting the Perspecta ethics helpline at 1.855.ETHICS0 or 1.855.384.4270, by emailing, or filing a report online at

Anonymous reports may be made through the ethics helpline or the EthicsPoint website.

Inquiries, concerns, or complaints related to the conduct and/or performance of Perspecta Risk Decision Group investigators—including employees, independent contractors and subcontractors—as it pertains to their work on background investigations should be directed to the Perspecta Integrity Assurance and Contract Compliance team or fax them anonymously to 866.775.2323 for reporting and resolution.

Social responsibility

Perspecta employees care. We are passionate and civic-minded. We engage both locally and nationally to drive meaningful change and open up greater possibilities for all citizens.

The health and well-being of our employees and their families is at the forefront of our community projects. That’s why Perspecta supports organizations like the American Heart Association (AHA). Since 2013, Perspecta has led the Greater Washington Heart Walk fundraising drive by contributing over $1.5 million to AHA. Each year hundreds of Perspecta volunteers put on their walking shoes, join their neighbors and raise money and advance the mission of AHA—to help build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Perspecta is deeply committed to honoring veterans and providing support to military families. The Home of the Brave Campaign was founded in 2012 to thank those who put their lives on the line for our freedom. The mission of the campaign is to remember, honor and help all generations of veterans in need through a volunteer and fundraising partnership with Soldiers' Angels, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Voluntary Service and the VA Homeless Program. In six years, this campaign has honored more than 100,000 veterans.

Environmental sustainability

At Perspecta, we are committed to improving the communities in which we live and work—and we know that a commitment like that, starts at home. That’s why we are currently developing a sustainability program that focuses on reducing waste and promoting energy efficiency in all of our offices with a goal of continuously reducing our greenhouse gas emissions on an ongoing basis. This initiative will include activities that are both achievable and measurable. Our program will focus on energy saving, reducing paper consumption, recycling and “green leasing” and/or LEED certification.

Conflict minerals report and policy

Perspecta is committed to the goal of preventing armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries from benefiting from the sourcing of “conflict minerals” from that region. Our Responsible Minerals Sourcing Policy articulates our efforts to further this goal, and our expectations of our suppliers.
