Help NATO reform its acquisition processes

In less than 10 minutes you can give NATO critical advice on how it should reform its acquisition processes.

Technology is changing at a rapid pace, and NATO must adapt its acquisition processes to keep up with the times. NATO's acquisition approach should take advantage of industry best practices to become more rapid and agile.

The NATO Industrial Advisory Group's Industry Initiative for Agile Acquisition has launched a survey to collect input from across industry that can inform NATO on how it should improve its acquisition process for technology-intensive projects. The acquisition team for the NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency intends to consider the recommendations that result from this initiative.

An online brainstorming platform was used in 2018 to crowdsource initial recommendations. This follow-up study aims at refining that initial input to improve the NATO acquisition process.

Anyone from industry, Member Nations and academia involved in the NATO ecosystem or in defence acquisition is invited to contribute. In the survey, you can review, rate and comment on the initial crowdsourced recommendations, and propose new recommendations.

NCI Agency Director of Acquisition Simona Rocchi said: "This is an excellent initiative, and the NCI Agency acquisition team looks forward to receiving the report. It is the NCI Agency's responsibility to look out for defence procurement best practices and adapt them for NATO use. Ultimately, our goal is to bring the best technology and services into the Alliance."
