The contracts have been awarded to the following companies:
Client and Users' Devices: Bechtle, Germany
Networking Equipment: BT, Belgium
Storage Equipment: UNI Business, Netherlands
Servers: Aliter, Slovakia
The contracts are Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), meaning that the Agency can purchase equipment from the contracted companies as needed up to the contract's ceiling. Each of the resulting contracts is valid for a period of three base years, with two year-long options, or up to a ceiling of 30 million EUR, whichever occurs first.
"It has been a great pleasure to partner with industry experts to put in place these contracts. This important effort will reduce the time it would usually take for NATO to acquire commercial off-the-shelf products and services," said Alex Vitry, Chief of Contracts.
