The Combined Air Operations Center in Uedem, Germany (CAOC UE) intends to issue an Invitation for International Bidding (IFIB) for the provision of retail web-site concessionaire services.

Potential U.S. prime contractors must 1) maintain a professionally active facility within the United States, 2) be approved for participation in NATO International Competitive Bidding (ICB), and (3) be nominated to the bidders list by the U.S. Government.

The reference for the IFIB is IFIB-ACO-RAM-18-20 and all correspondence regarding the IFIB should include that reference.

Partial bidding is not authorized.


CAOC UE requires the services of a qualified, professional concessionaire to operate a tax-free retail web-site for members of the CAOC in Uedem, Germany.


NATO ICB requires that the U.S. Government nominate potential U.S. prime contractors to the bidders list. Before the U.S. Government can nominate a U.S. prime contractor to the bidder list for this procurement, the U.S. firm must be approved for participation in NATO ICB. U.S. firms are approved for NATO ICB on a facility-by-facility basis.

The U.S. NATO ICB application is a one-time application. The application requires supporting documentation in the form of 1) a company resume indicating contracts completed as a prime contractor and 2) an annual report or set of financial documents indicating compilation, review, or audit by an independent CPA.

U.S. firms can download a copy of the U.S. NATO ICB application from the following website:

The application and supporting documentation may be submitted as e-mail attachments. If, when submitting the application, your firm is interested in a specific NATO ICB project, please include the following in the text of your email:

- the title and/or solicitation number of the project
- the name/phone/FAX/email of the company employee who should receive the bid documents

After approval of your one-time NATO ICB application, the Department of Commerce will then know to follow up by issuing a Declaration of Eligibility (DOE) for the project. The Department of Commerce uses a DOE to nominate an approved firm to the bidders list for a particular NATO ICB project.


U.S. firms should request a DOE (and, for U.S. firms new to NATO ICB, submit the one-time NATO ICB application): 18 June 2018

NATO contracting office issues IFIB (planned): 28 June 2018

CAOC UE will directly e-mail the IFIB to all firms on its bidders list and will post an abstract of the IFIB on the following website:
