We are the Netherlands Ministry of Defence Materiel and IT Command, Command Materiel and IT. We are COMMIT. We provide the Netherlands armed forces with what they need. The best materiel and the best IT; that is our mission and our firm commitment. We are ready to ensure that our colleagues have the best resources at hand, both at home and abroad. On land, at sea, in the air and even in space. We are the bridge between the Defence organisation’s needs and the possibilities offered by the market and our budgets. We are innovative, collaborative, and constantly searching for smart solutions that can be put into effect quickly. With the armed forces’ need for improved readiness and deployability comes a demand for solid support from COMMIT. The Netherlands Chief of Defence, as our tasking authority, can count on our skills and expertise to deliver just that. We pull together the worlds of IT, technology, purchasing and logistics. We are driven and inventive in our support, for everything from procurement to sales; technology to information; equipment and clothing to supplies and communications; cyberspace to boots on the ground. We reach agreements with national and international partners in joint efforts to deal with existing and emerging threats. We bring our knowledge to bear in development and tendering. In the purchase and maintenance of weapon systems and IT, we bring the Defence organisation together with the business sector and knowledge institutes. With a workforce of civilian and military personnel, we do what it takes to protect what we value. With technical professionals, IT experts, purchasers and project leaders who are experts in their field, we create the connection between ambition and ability. These are the principles that we fully commit to. Day after day. Because we are COMMIT.
