NIPP: The National Industrial Participation Program was introduced to the automotive industry in 2006. NIPP creates an obligation on sellers of goods to government. The automotive industry provides large volumes of vehicles to government under the RT57 annual tender. These sales create an NIPP obligation that needs to be offset. BCE has developed specific NIPP skills to address the risks associated with NIPP, and currently provides assistance to 3 OEM’s in managing their NIPP responsibilities. Again, the specific skills developed by BCE place us in a very advantageous position to consult to other participants.
