By the end of 2021, the NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency plans to make over €500 million worth of business available for industry to bid on, with €200 million of those opportunities to be released in the next six months.

Having made adjustments for operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Agency’s new acquisitions continue to be executed, as do the contract administration functions. Upcoming solicitations will be released as planned, with necessary adjustments in the schedules where in-person activities such as demonstrations and site visits are required as part of the bidding process.

We are constantly assessing the impact of COVID-19 on both the current work under contract, and work related to the release of solicitations,” commented NCI Agency Acquisition Director, Jennifer Upton. “We look forward to continued collaboration with our industry partners to collectively adapt and overcome any challenges this pandemic may bring, ensuring NATO’s critical work continues.”
