NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA)


NSPA is NATO's lead organisation for multinational acquisition, support, and sustainment. 

NSPA brings together, in a single organization, acquisition, logistics, medical and infrastructure capabilities including the related procurement function to answer a vast variety of customer requirements in all domain: air, ground, maritime, cyber and space. These range from the multinational acquisition of complex platforms, such as aircraft, helicopters and unmanned systems, to the provision of supplies such as fuel, spare parts and ammunition, or services such as maintenance of radars for air defence, or deployable infrastructure, transportation, medical and catering services.

Since its establishment in 1958, NSPA acquires, operates, and maintains everything through an unbiased link between industry and the nations, enabling the consolidation and centralisation of logistics management functions, providing a "cradle to grave" support and allowing its customers to achieve economies of scale.
