The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) procures CAD $6 billion (EUR 4 billion) worth of goods and services annually on behalf of the NATO nations. Since Canada is a NATO member, Canadian companies are eligible to bid on many of these opportunities. Three different types of notices are used by the NSPA:
Requests for Proposal (RFP)
- All solicitations for procurement with an estimated value above CAD $120 000 (EUR 80 000) that are not for a restricted distribution are published on the NSPA eProcurement portal
Future Business Opportunities (FBO) and Notifications of Intent (NOI)
- Whenever a future need with an estimated value above CAD $120 000 (EUR 80 000) is identified by a NATO nation, and before the release of the RFP, a FBO or NOI is published. (Note: NOI's are used for the NSPA infrastructure projects only).
- These notices provide the basic information about the future need and the estimated release date of the RFP.

In order to work with the NSPA, a business must be registered. Canadian companies can register free of charge with the NSPA.
Note: There is a delay of 24 hours in the publication of NSPA notices on Buyandsell.gc.ca. The delay has been introduced to ensure the information below in the search tool is available in French and English. It should be noted that NSPA notices are issued by NATO nations; they are therefore not procurements issued by Canada. Please consult the NSPA eProcurement portal for the most current notices.
