The ACO Acquisition Management Branch is headed by the ACO Head of Contracts who is responsible for developing, coordinating, promulgating and implementing acquisition policies and procedures ACO-wide.
The ACO Head of Contracts promotes best practices, harmonized procedures and economies of scale whenever practical and feasible.
Currently approved structure for the ACO Acquisition Management Branch provides the following three sections:
- ACO Strategic Acquisition and Agency Management Section
- ACO Allied Operations and Missions (AOM) Acquisition Plans and Policy Section
- SHAPE Contract Management Section
Note: the above structure is under review due to the ongoing NATO Command Structure (NCS) adaptation. Upon completion of the review and approval process, the new updated version will be posted on this website.
