The NATO Support and Procurement Agency, acts in the market to link industry capabilities and nations requirements to find the most cost-effective and efficient solutions, whether for national or collective defence.
NSPA's vision is to perform as NATO's premier life cycle management (including acquisition) and services provider, effectively and efficiently delivering integrated capabilities for NATO, its Nations and Partners including support to operations and exercises. As these capabilities are being mostly outsourced, strong and truly partnering relations with industry are vital.
Key principles of NSPA procurement:
Requirements from various customers are consolidated in order to invite bids for larger quantities and obtain better conditions.
International competitive bidding primarily amongst companies located in NATO countries and, in certain cases, also non-NATO countries.
Integrity, transparency and equal treatment
NSPA policy is based on the traditional principles of public procurement.
