On April 24, 2020, the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) announced the conclusion of a five-year contract with Level Peaks Associates for the procurement of combat uniforms and accessories. With this contract, the NSPA will provide equipment via the dismounted soldier equipment user group (DSEUG) and thus meet the recurring needs of the nations involved. The DSEUG is currently formed by 24 NATO nations. The leading nation is Great Britain, represented by the Royal Marines.

The UK's Royal Marine Command Forces have expressed an interest in the equipment. The Netherlands, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Greece, Norway, Poland and Slovakia have also expressed interest in the contract.

Through such cross-national procurements, NATO - through the NSPA - wants to combine the capabilities of industry and national requirements in order to find the cheapest and most efficient solutions. Any company interested in working with the NSPA must register in a central database that includes past, current, and potential providers, including performance and capabilities. Registration is free.
