OCCAR places and manages both operational and administrative contracts.
Operational contracts, which cover programme activities (e.g. development, production, support) in accordance with the Programme Decision(s), are funded under the operational budget of the relevant programme. OCCAR-EA advertises requirements related to operational contracts in accordance with the Programme Procurement Strategy on this website. Current requirements, if any, are advertised in the column on the left.
Subject to national regulations, the requirements are also advertised in the respective bulletins of the OCCAR Member States and non-Member Programme Participating States.
Administrative contracts, which cover activities associated with the internal functioning of the Central Office and the Programme Divisions (e.g. supplies and services), are funded under the OCCAR-EA administrative budget. The current requirements, if any, are advertised in the column on the left.
