NSPA standby operational service contracts support VJTF
01 February 2018
The Operational Logistics Support Partnership (OLSP) has put in place several service contracts for standby fuel, food and transportation in support of for NATO’s Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) 2018, which is led by Italy. The recently signed contracts are the result of common effort and cooperation between NSPA’s OLSP and Operational Logistics Planning and Support Programme staff, and both the transport and procurement divisions at the Agency.
During the Wales Summit in 2014, NATO agreed to establish the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF). This force is a high readiness "Spearhead Force" of the NATO Forces able to deploy on short notice to threats against NATO sovereignty. Italy provides the core contingent for VJTF 2018.
NSPA will deliver the contracted services throughout 2018.
