Quantum Research Intl.


North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Communications and Information (NCI) Agency Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA)

The NCI Agency BOA is the primary part of a two-stage contracting procedure where Quantum has negotiated a contract with the NCI Agency to supply engineering and information technology products, services and solutions. Using this BOA, NATO organizations may place individual orders for retail quantities of products and services.

NCI Agency BOAs are acquisition instruments negotiated between suppliers of products and services and the NCI Agency on behalf of NATO in accordance with the referential NATO guidelines and procedures. A BOA is defined as a two-stage contracting procedure whereby a framework contract, specifying all basic contract provisions, including the pricing methodology, is negotiated and placed with a potential supplier for a specified range of goods and services against which retail quantities can be ordered, on a competitive basis, at a later stage.

The aim of this procurement procedure is to provide Host Nations with an accelerated and cost-effective acquisition method for Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products and services, respecting the principle of non-discrimination- and fostering an environment conducive to maximizing the participation of qualified firms. Quantum is a current supplier of engineering and IT products, services and solutions.
