What is NSPA

The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) is a customer-funded agency, operating on a "no profit - no loss" basis. The NSPA is the executive body of the NATO Support and Procurement Organisation (NSPO), of which all 28 NATO nations are members. Those nations are represented in the NSPO Agency Supervisory Board (ASB) which directs and controls the activities of the NSPA. Currently the Agency employs some 1,100 staff and is headquartered in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Capellen), with operational centres in Luxembourg, France, Hungary and Italy.

The NSPA brings together in a single organisation NATO’s logistics and procurement support activities, providing integrated multinational support solutions for its stakeholders. On 1 April, 2015, the NATO North Atlantic Council approved changes to the NATO Support Organisation Charter with the stand-up of the NATO Support and Procurement Organization, the NATO Support and Procurement Agency acting as its executive body. These changes mark the expansion of the Agency’s capability scope and the inclusion of major, multi-national weapons system acquisition in our broad capability set. The diagram below outlines our new capability portfolio for which the Agency offers products and services across the Agency’s business units – Central Europe Pipeline System Programme, the NATO Airlift Management Programme and Logistic Operations segment. Their capabilities are now seamlessly integrated across NSPA to effectively serve our customers, stakeholders, NATO and industry partners.

NSPA five capability areas

  • Support to Operations and Exercises,
  • Systems Procurement and Life-Cycle Management,
