Industrial Cooperation Services

Even as a client is considering a new business pursuit in the Nordic region, or entry into a competition, the Nordic American team begins to assess the implications of such a pursuit in terms of the industrial cooperation obligation that must follow. In fact, the industrial cooperation proposal, which must be constructed prior to the completion of the competition, can become a major marketing tool influencing the selection process itself. It is a formal, defined criterion of the evaluation process, and has a significant value in the overall ranking. Our team possesses many years of experience in the business of offsets and industrial cooperation, and, particularly with respect to Norway, has established a close working relationship with those whose task it is to draft policy, execute policy, and negotiate obligations. Equally important, we have acquired a deep familiarity with the defense industrial base companies themselves, and with the small and medium sized enterprises involved in contributive technologies.

Nordic American can be an indispensable tool in assessing a realistic cost-to-complete the obligation, providing a portfolio of qualified potential projects, constructing the offset proposal for pre-selection consideration, identifying and qualifying replacement projects as necessary, being a partner in negotiating project proposals, and executing projects and closing on crediting with the Ministry of Defence.
