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 29 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 three main capability pillars: Support to Operations and Exercises; Life Cycle Management (including the large-scale acquisition) and Services.
The Agency will continue to look across each of these Capability Areas with its customers and stakeholders to identify, prioritize and pursue new products and services required to meet requirements as they evolve in the future.
