The NATO Communication and Information Agency plans to purchase cyber defence equipment to replace systems reaching their end of life at the NATO Cyber Security Centre win a contract estimated to be valued at €27.1M. This will refresh the centre’s defence systems by replacing firewalls that are reaching their end of service lives, while modernising them where newer techniques and technologies exist.
This procurement is part of the Capability Package (CP) 120 Programme, which is designed to refresh all CIS security systems in a phased approach, with each phase including a series of capability enhancements.
The agency intends to release a formal Request for Quotations in the third quarter of 2021 and award the contract by the fourth quarter of that year, with implementation to begin in 2022.
The procurement will be conducted under Basic Order Agreement Plus (BOA+) procedures.
