LA International has been selected by the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) as the only UK representative on a major new €350 million Framework Agreement for the delivery of a wide range of technical and project-based capabilities.
The NCI Agency provides NATO’s principal IT and C4ISR capability, including cyber and missile defence. Alongside a small number of other leading global organisations from the US, France, Germany and Belgium, LA International has been entrusted to meet NATO’s diverse capability requirements across areas such as cyber security, ICT, military, project management, engineering and scientific skills.
Paul Lukic, CEO and chairman of LA International stated: “The NCI Agency took the strategic decision to drive for better value for money across a framework of just 10 Suppliers worldwide, and to be the only UK supplier is a tremendous achievement They have selected LA International due to our market-leading expertise and track record in deploying large volumes of security cleared personnel into NATO and Military environments on a worldwide basis.”
The new framework contract sees LA International as a Prime Contractor alongside other winning brands in Europe including IBM, Airbus and Atos, expanding its already impressive footprint of private and public sector clients both in the UK and Internationally.
The win builds on a decade-long highly successful relationship with NATO, coming only several months after winning another strategic contract award for the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Exploration (CMRE) in La Spezia, Italy.
Jamie Davies, sales director at LA International comments: “Some of the most recognised global brands in IT, technology and defence competed for this contract with only a very small number being successful. We put together a world class team that included Microsoft, Unisys and several leading SME’s, with LA International as the Prime Contractor. To secure our position and be the only British company selected as a Prime Contractor is an excellent achievement and one that we can all be extremely proud of. It is testament to the commitment and dedication of our staff and it reaffirms our position as Europe’s leading providing of professional services within the Government and Defence market.”
