On the 24th April 2020, the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) announced the conclusion of a five-year contract with Level Peaks Associates for the procurement of combat uniforms and accessories, where the NSPA will provide equipment through the Dismounted Soldier Equipment User Group (DSEUG) to meet the recurrent needs of the participating nations. The DSEUG is currently formed of 24 NATO countries with the UK as the lead nation, represented by the Royal Marines, who have expressed their interest in the equipment while the Netherlands, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Greece, Norway, Poland and Slovakia have also expressed their interest in the treaty. The NSPA provides support to NATO and Partner countries, the NATO Response Force (NRF) and operations approved by the North Atlantic Council (NAC) in the area of dismounted soldiers. The NSPA operates in the marketplace to combine industrial capabilities and national requirements in order to find the most cost-effective and efficient solutions, whether for national or collective defence. Any company interested in working with the NSPA must register (free of charge) with the NSPA Source File, a central database containing past, present and potential suppliers, including performance and capabilities.
