The NATO Security Investment Programme

The NATO Security Investment Programme (NSIP) is the long-term investment programme supported by funding from all NATO Nations. Based on the requirements identified by the NATO Defence Planning Process (NDPP), NSIP delivers common funded capabilities required to fulfil the Alliance’s Level of Ambition. The NSIP objectives are to enhance peace, security and stability, through reinforcement and maintenance of a solid transatlantic link demonstrating a strong affirmation of NATO solidarity and to continue the successful practice of sharing roles, risks, responsibilities, costs and benefits that bind the Alliance together.

In making the commitment to fund common investments for the Alliance, the Allies have agreed a number of essential principles that must be applied before any expenditure can be authorised. The most important principle is that of "Over and Above" which refers to the provision of a capability required by the Alliance that is "over" what is currently available within the Nations’ inventories and "above" what would be considered reasonable for any single Ally to deliver. Moreover, the range of facilities eligible for common funding has generally been limited to NATO Command Structure Static Facilities, Permanent Installations, Deployable Assets, Communication and Information Systems and Crisis Response facilities. The Nations have also agreed that only Minimum Military Requirement (MMR) to fulfil any particular capability is eligible for common funding. Therefore, MMR is defined as "the most austere facility required to fulfilling a NATO military need identified by the NATO military authorities".

The common funded capabilities are delivered to the Alliance by the designated Host Nations (Territorial Host Nations, Strategic Commands and NATO Agencies) in accordance with the agreed schedule and financial profile.

Within the NSIP framework, Romania supports the implementation of all capabilities aiming to provide key capabilities required to fulfil the Alliance’s level of ambition, including those in support of the Readiness Action Plan. Likewise, Romania is committed to implement in a timely manner those projects for which she acts as Host Nation and supports a transparent participation of all eligible enterprises in competitive biddings conducted in order to implement common funded capabilities.

The Romanian companies interested to participate in NATO biddings could obtain declarations of eligibility following the procedure described here:
