Abstract:

Since the end of the Cold War, and the disintegration of the Warsaw Pact, NATO alliances have collectively had to change their procurement philosophies. NATO procurement as it applies to the 19 nations has met with decreased military funding due to changes in the military environment. The procurement arena of today reflects multinational efforts and is marked by global standardization. However, NATOs organizational procuring entities have changed very little since the end of the Cold War. By assessing the practices of three of the procuring entities, one can make recommendations regarding their procurement policies and procedures and their principal problem areas.
