Chapter 18: NATO Military Common-Funded Resources

International Manpower

1822. The primary consideration in establishing international military and civilian posts is the responsible and successful execution of NATO military missions, using the appropriate number of personnel. The MC annually approves the international military ceiling and certifies the NATO civilian manpower ceiling as put forward by the NDMC.

1823. Military manpower, as a general rule, is paid for by the nation making the manpower available. International civilian manpower in support of the Alliance command structure is funded through the military budget. Civil manpower requirements for headquarters are endorsed only where nations are unable to provide military personnel with the requisite staff or professional skills, or when continuity is required.
