Explanation:
In this case, I think you could also refer to an "oferta internacional abierta y competitiva".
COTS means "estándar", not customized.
Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Accounting Solution

incluye una amplia gama de aplicaciones COTS para middleware, entre las que se cuentan los protocolos de redes, el soporte para la galardonada tecnología Java(TM), y las herramientas de diseño y depuración

Explanation:
I am sorry forgot to translate both terms in my first answer.

1. Procurement means "licitación"(a)in the first sentence and "contratacion" (b) in the second:

(a) open international competitive procurement: licitaciones públicas/abiertas internacionales

See:

Guía para Usuarios: edición enero de 1997 espanol.htm
InterAm ... Pública). 13. Government Procurement (Licitaciones
Públicas). 14. Immigration (Inmigración). ...
www.natlaw.com/espanol.htm

(b) Procurement requires.. = contratación requiere..

2. COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf)solution = compra/licitación de mercancías en existencia

See:

Generalmente de 15 días antes de la publicación del anuncio y éste debe permitir por lo menos 30 días de plazo para la respuesta. Sin embargo, de acuerdo con la complejidad de la licitación, se puede extender el plazo para respuesta. Adicionalmente, el plazo requerido ha sido reducido para licitaciones comerciales, off-the-shelf (COTS) [compras de mercancías en existencia] y se reducirán en el futuro para licitaciones que se realicen por medios electrónicos.

I hope this helps.

The last sentence could be translated:

La contratación requiere las soluciones tipo COTS - compras de mercancías en existencia.

Good luck.

Davorka.
