We analyze the possible magnitude of the supersymmetric contribution to in a flipped SU(5) GUT model. Unlike other GUT models which are severely constrained by universality relations, in flipped SU(5) the U(1) gaugino mass and the soft supersymmetry-breaking masses of right-handed sleptons are unrelated to the other gaugino, slepton and squark masses. Consequently, the lightest neutralino and the right-handed smuon may be light enough to mitigate the discrepancy between the experimental measurement of and the Standard Model calculation, in which case they may be detectable at the LHC and/or a 250 GeV collider, whereas the other gauginos and sfermions are heavy enough to escape detection at the LHC.
