NATO procurement is undertaken by different entities (including NATO agencies) on behalf of NATO.

There is no central organisation responsible for procurement. There are many sources of NATO funding for various types of projects, but most capital investment projects which NATO delivers are funded by the NATO Security and Investment Programme (NSIP).

This guide aims to pull together some of the key aspects of NATO procurement procedures in one place, but focuses on the NSIP.

This guide gives an indication of the current position as at the date of writing but the contents are subject to change.
