The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) announced today that it has signed a 5-years contract with Level Peaks Associates for the procurement of combat uniforms and accessories. A signing ceremony was virtually celebrated between the involved parties.
With this contract, NSPA will provide equipment to the Dismounted Soldier Equipment User Group (DSEUG), covering recurring requirements from the participating nations. The DSEUG is a User Group under the auspices of the COMMIT Support Partnership Committee (CPC), currently formed by 24 NATO (partner) nations.
The contract, available on the NATO Logistics Stock Exchange (NLSE) that provides the participating nations with an online ordering capability, has been established with the support of the UK’s Royal Marine Command Forces as ‘Lead Nation’, with additional interest in the contract shown by The Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Norway, Poland and Slovakia.
“Thanks to the trust of a growing number of Allied armed forces, NSPA has built a real expertise in capturing the expectations of their end users. With their cooperation, NSPA has translated this requirement into statement of work for the market and has conducted demanding technical evaluations. These human and technical resources have been brought to bear with this important combat uniforms project”, said Mr Patrick Fesquet, NSPA Director of Procurement.
Peter Dohmen, NSPA General Manager, confirmed: “The signature of this contract, while most of our workforce is teleworking, is a statement to their dedication. This also confirms the close cooperation the Agency has established with industry and how this translates in the service to NATO and our customers.”
NSPA provides support in the field of Dismounted Soldier Equipment (DSE) to NATO and Partner Nations, NATO Response Force (NRF) and North Atlantic Council (NAC)-approved operations.
