NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA)


WHO ARE WE?

The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) brings together, in a single organization, acquisition, logistic, medical and infrastructural capabilities, operational and systems support and services to the NATO nations, NATO Military Authorities and partner nations. As NATO's primary enabler, the Agency's mission is to provide effective and cost efficient multinational solutions to the Alliance, its 30 Nations and Partners.

Since its establishment in 1958, NSPA acquires, operates, and maintains everything through an unbiased link between industry and the nations: from weapon systems to fuel delivery, port services, airfield logistics, medical and catering services or base support services for troops stationed across the world. The Agency enables the consolidation and centralisation of logistics management functions, providing a "cradle to grave" support and allowing its customers to achieve economies of scale.

Over 60,000 companies are registered in the NSPA source file, of which 10,000 are actively doing business with NSPA's customers.

NSPA is a customer-funded agency, operating on a "no profit - no loss" basis. The business activity has grown nearly fourfold in the last decade, reaching an annual business volume of €4 billion.

NSPA is headquartered in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, with main operational centres in France, Hungary and Italy. The Agency employs around 1,550 staff and overseeing over 2,500 contractors in NATO's missions across the world.
