NSPA welcomes the NATO Military Committee

22 November 2018


On 22 November 2018, NSPA hosted the Military Committee (MC) chaired by Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach. The senior staff from NSPA led by the General Manager Peter Dohmen provided various briefings on the Agency’s roles and capabilities highlighting the "support to operations and exercises" and "capability development and sustainment" domains.

The MC is the senior military authority in NATO and the oldest permanent body in NATO after the North Atlantic Council, both having been formed months after the Alliance came into being. The Committee is made up of senior military officers from NATO member countries and is the primary source of military advice to NATO’s civilian decision-making bodies - the North Atlantic Council and the Nuclear Planning Group.

“The meeting was a great opportunity to present to this high level stakeholder group, a detailed update on NSPA’s business units, ongoing Support to Operations and our ambitions for the future. I strongly believe that we invested in awareness and better understanding of NSPA’s capabilities.” emphasized NSPA General Manager Peter Dohmen.

On behalf of the MC, Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach thanked the NSPA team for the support in NATO logistics and procurement and stressed the fact that “NSPA is vital to NATO’s success on Operations.” He then concluded that the Committee should be briefed annually by NSPA.
