The Danish Armed Forces
Denmark has a political tradition with respect to its defence policy. The policy is established through the "Defence Agreement" between the political parties constituting the majority in the Danish Parliament.
The organization of Danish Defence has undergone major restructuring. The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization, DALO, (Forsvarets Materieltjeneste, FMT) was established per 1st January 2006.
During 2006 a transition took place merging the Naval Materiel Command Denmark, the Danish Army Materiel Command and the Air Materiel Command of the Royal Danish Air Force into DALO. The transition was completed by 1st January 2007. DALO will continue to publish the Danish Defence Procurement Bulletin in electronic form. As a part of a amendment to the defense agreement FMT will become a part of Ministry of Defence as soon as possible, expectedly 2014 or 2015.
The FAD is a permanent representative in various Committees and Working Groups with the Danish Armed Forces and maintains a continuous dialogue concerning national as well as international matters related to defence and defence industry cooperation.
