Certain NSPA positions have been created and funded by customers to cover missions requiring compulsory deployment. In these cases, the contracts for deployable civilians include a compulsory deployability clause. This deployability clause states that the position in question is earmarked for mandatory deployment in support of NAC-approved operations and missions. This means that the incumbent of the post may be required to deploy for 6 months out of every 18 months throughout the contract period.
Note: Consultants may be hired in support of operations. In this case, the place of duty for the operational phase of their assignment will be specified in the contract.
