The Group of Senior Experts was appointed by the Secretary General on 20 October 2016 to provide independent advice and recommendations, in response to two recent performance audit reports by the International Board of Auditors for NATO (IBAN), which highlighted the need for improved governance arrangements.

The thirteen GSE experts came from NATO nations with a variety of backgrounds and experience gained at senior level in the military, defence, and academic worlds.

The IBAN audit reports and the report from the Group of Senior Experts are highly valuable. The Alliance is committed to taking the actions required to ensure that the right capabilities are delivered in the most  timely and efficient manner to military commanders.”
