Welcome to the Joint Support and Enabling Command (JSEC) Acquisition Management Website.

On this site you can find useful information on how to do business with JSEC. It also provides information about current and/or future JSEC business opportunities. In principle, all commodities and services are procured through Simplified Procurement procedures, and/or International Competitive Bidding (ICB), depending on the estimated value of the award.

Simplified Procurement Procedures

Below the amount of 160,000€, the simplified procedure applies.

It is used when the estimated award value is below the threshold requiring ICB (i.e. below Level D of the Established Financial Limit, currently 160,000€).

Depending on the amount, either a single tender is sufficient (up to 20,000 €) or solicitation from at least three providers (up to 40,000 €) or at least five providers (up to 160,000 €) is necessary.

Here, bidders from JSEC's participating nations will find information about any current and/or future Simplified Procurement advertised by JSEC, to be enabled to make an offer in accordance with the bidding instructions included in the respective solicitation packages.

International Competitive Bidding (ICB)

If the value exceeds 160,000€, formal procurement will be the appropriate process, consisting of International Competitive Bidding and Proposals.

ICBs are opened to firms that

• originate and are chartered/incorporated within JSEC's participating nations that provide the funding for the requirement stated in the ICB, and
• maintain a professionally active facility (office/factory/laboratory, etc.) within JSEC's participating nations.

All JSEC Purchasing and Contracting personnel observes a "zero tolerance" policy and does not accept any type of gift or any offer of hospitality. Suppliers are therefore expected not to offer any gift or hospitality. Any item received from vendors, even of nominal value, will be returned to the vendor or donated to charity.
