                 NATO UNCLASSIFIED
                                                                                      Strategic Plan 2010 - 2012




              NC3A STRATEGY AT A GLANCE 2010-2012
                 Environment
                 The NATO will continue expeditionary operations and increasingly require C4ISR solutions
                 to the Comprehensive Approach; operations will remain NC3A’s #1 priority.

                 Adherence to the NNEC concept will remain significant for Alliance operational success.
                 Governance, planning and interface to nations will be a key element

                 NC3A must understand, anticipate and meet the C4ISR needs of the alliance; being
                 accountable to and focusing on our principle user, ‘the soldier on operations’ - creating
                 superiority in decision making by creating superiority in information handling. We must
                 enable a better Capability Development process.

                 Our stance must shift to be forward leaning, proactive, anticipatory, shaping our environment
                 and future.

                 Scrutiny and governance over NC3A activities will heighten; nations will expect greater
                 transparency and value for money from NC3A. We can respond in several ways: increased
                 efficiency while consolidating the effectiveness; stakeholder engagement; technology
                 exploitation and rapid insertion; synergistic (2+2=5) solutions; closer cooperation with
                 nations; smarter (re)use of existing capability; and coherency mapping and coherent solutions.

                 Agency sponsor demand will grow in support of operations and stabilise in other areas; ratio
                 of demand will alter across sponsor accounts; pace of delivery, especially in NSIP funded
                 capability packages, will potentially rise.

                 NC3A workforce will be composed of core and rotational NCšA staffs, contractors, and shaped
                 to match competencies and agility required for a flexible and swift response.

                 Technologies required: current NATO operations; deployable communications; information
                 assurance; Cyber Defence; TMD; ISR; and NNEC. Future technologies: communications
                 services; C2 for smaller operational footprints, due-use (military + civilian); ISR; disruptive
                 technologies.

                 The global economic crisis and climate change could trigger rapid changes in the security
                 environment; NC3A will be flexible and postured to respond.

                 Increased emphasis on legal relationships/frameworks and multi-national activities, such
                 as MAJIIC.

                 Strategic Methodology
                 A concurrent strategic top down and bottom up operational approach:

                 Increasingly focused top down strategic analysis set the Agency’s high level strategic goals
                 and strategic objectives underpinned by a Balanced Scorecard (including measures, metrics,
                 targets and funded initiatives); and

                 Increasingly focused bottom up operational analysis based on current and assessed demand,
                 historical data, proven management practice delivering flexibility with forecast resource
                 constraints and near term executive tasks and priorities.

INTRODUCTION
The NC3A 2010-2012 Strategic Plan has been written at a significant moment in the life
of the Alliance and its NC3A. It is released in NATO’s 60th year and has been developed
following a major managerial review of our environment within the C4ISR community and
the future direction of the Alliance. Underpinned by a successful realignment and a track
record of stability and growth as a customer funded organisation, NC3A’s strategy positions
it to build on those foundations and enable NC3A to move toward its vision: one team, one
motive: NATO’s success.

The NC3A 2010-2012 Strategic Plan is submited in accordance with NATO C3 Organisation
Reporting Requirements, issued, 21 April 2006. It outlines the foundation for Agency
responsiveness to Alliance C4ISR demands. Within its context lie the NC3A mission, vision
and value statements:

MISSION
(Why we exist)
  Enable NATO’s success through the unbiased provision of comprehensive C4ISR capabilities


VISION
(What we want to be)
  The NC3A as an essential contributor to NATO success


VALUES
(What we believe in)
  One team; one motive: NATO’s success

Format
Following this brief introduction, the reader will find the Agency Strategy. The format
loosely follows the construct of a military plan and is an executive document to direct the
Agency’s activities.

The first section of the plan outlines the strategic security environment, and what we believe
to be our higher authorities’ intent for C4ISR from NATO’s Strasbourg-Kehl Declaration and
the NC3B’s C3 Capability objectives. NC3A’s key deductions from analysis of these follows;
supporting detailed analysis is contained in annexes.

The method of strategic execution is outlined in the following section and brings together the
essential elements: the Agency Strategy Map and Balanced Scorecard; and the operational
plan.

The final section of the main document, providing the coordinating instructions and support
issues, is possibly of less interest to the external reader.

Detailed annexes and appendices provide supporting rational or information. For succinctness
the annexes and appendices are not included in the externally published document but most
are available on request.

              STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENT AND ANALYSIS

              NATO and the Strategic Security Environment
              In its sixtieth anniversary the world in which NATO was formed has changedradically and
              continues to change. There are many uncertainties and challenges ahead, some have been
              faced before but there are also new ones looming. What is certain in our uncertain world is
              NATO’s relevance remains assured. What is also assured is the significance of C4ISR to the
              success of NATO and its operations. NC3A’s mission remains relevant. To deliver on that
              mission, NC3A must recognise and understand the security environment in which it will
              operate.

              The Strasbourg-Kehl Summit
              The Strasbourg-Kehl 60th Anniversary Summit highlighted our strategic security setting.
              NATO’s security will be increasingly tied to that of other regions and must address new,
              increasingly global threats, such as terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass
              destruction, their means of delivery and cyber attacks. Other challenges such as energy
              security, climate change, as well as instability emanating from fragile and failed states, may
              also have a negative impact on Allied and international security and may emerge at strategic
              distance or closer to home. These security challenges require cooperation between the
              international community, of which NATO is a part, and a comprehensive approach by the
              international community, combining civil and military measures and coordination. Existing
              partnerships and relationships will be strengthened. Against this security backdrop, the
              current economic situation will encourage Alliance members to prioritise their defence
              spending and programming for improved efficiency, and require greater use of multinational
              solutions for existing or additional capability development.

              Anticipating NATO’s Concept – it’s future intent.
              The Strasbourg-Kehl Summit marked a waypoint in the direction of the Alliance, laying the
              foundations for the development of a new Strategic Concept for the Alliance which will be
              unveiled at the next Summit in Portugal. From the Strasbourg-Kehl Summit and the priorities
              set in the Comprehensive Political Guidance, there are pointers to NATO’s future intent that
              specifically, or implicitly, impact NC3A.

                Expansion of NATO by two new members, Albania and Croatia, the re-integration of France
                into the NATO Military Structure, and continued discussions with several potential members.

                A possible expanded role of the Active Layered Theatre Missile Defence (ALTBMD)
                programme beyond the protection of NATO deployed forces to include territorial missile
                defence.

                Strengthening communication and information systems that are of critical importance to
                the Alliance against cyber attacks and acceleration of cyber defence capabilities in order to
                achieve full readiness. A framework for cooperation on cyber defence between NATO and
                Partner countries, and an acknowledgment of the need to cooperate with international
                organisations, as appropriate.

                Attention to the High North, energy security and related infrastructure security.

                Improvement in the ability to meet security challenges that impact directly on Alliance
                territory, as they emerge at strategic distance or closer to home - allies capabilities must
                become more flexible and deployable to respond quickly and effectively. Forces must be
                more deployable, sustainable, interoperable and usable. NRF retains an important role in
                providing a rapidly deployable, credible force for the Alliance and in driving transformation
                and capability development.

                NATO structures reform to: create a leaner and more cost-effective organization; achieve the
                fastest and most coherent flow of sound political, military and resource advice to support
                consensual decision-making; and to enhance responsiveness to time-sensitive operational
                needs.

NATO C3 Agency




      A new defence planning process which puts the emphasis squarely on delivery of
      capabilities the Alliance needs to deal with current and future challenges within a
      comprehensive approach. Greater use of multinational solutions for additional capability
      development and pursuit of many of these initiatives in the existing framework of NATO-EU
      cooperation in capability development via the NATO-EU Capability Group.

      Strengthened cooperation with other international actors, including the United Nations,
      European Union, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and African Union.
      Active promotion of dialogue with relevant players on operations; the development of a
      CIMIC database of national experts in reconstruction and stabilisation to advise NATO
      forces; and the involvement of selected international organisations, as appropriate, in NATO
      crisis management exercises.

      Development of NATO’s relationships with all partners with whom it has a joint commitment
      to cooperative security, this includes a strong, cooperative partnership with Russia.

      A continued focus on operations and a growth in its role in NATO’s priority operation, ISAF,
      to include a training mission.

      Develop advanced technologies to help defend against terrorist attacks, strengthening
      information and intelligence sharing on terrorism.

      A new headquarters for NATO Special Operation Forces.

NC3B C3 Capability Strategic Overview1
NC3B’s C3 capability strategic overview identifies C3 capabilities that need to be progressively
provided by NATO and the nations, to match the Alliance’s level of ambition. The overview
provides the NC3B’s intent for C3 Capability development that specifically or implicitly,
impact NC3A:

Providing C3 support to ongoing operations:
  Improved sharing of information from Joint Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance assets;

      Improved utilisation of radio spectrum by introducing more effective spectrum
      management.

      Reduction of fratricide by adapting a standard air-ground combat identification approach
      and completing the standardisation and adoption of Friendly Force Tracking;

      Improved information availability and sharing by federated deployed NATO and national
      Mission Networks;

      Improved information assurance measures, and cryptographic interoperability in NATO and
      coalition operations; and

      Improved interoperable information exchange by consolidating and harmonising NATO
      standards.

Delivering a data-centric, service-orientated NATO Networking and Information
Infrastructure (NNII) in support of NATO Network-Enabled Capability:

      Consolidate current NATO network components;

      Adopt data-centric attributes and the service-oriented approach in all new and upgraded
      projects;

      Ensure development of the supporting Doctrine, Organisation and Management for a data-
      centric and service orientated Networking and Information Infrastructure;

                Improve security management concepts and measures and introduce cross domain
                solutions; and

                Improve Alliance-wide Cyber Defence Capabilities;

              Promoting the federation of NATO and National Networking and Information Infrastructure
              (NII) components:

                Develop mutual trust to support interconnection of networks by agreeing and
                implementing the required security measures;

                Progressively federate NATO and National network components to exchange information
                services; and

                Progressively enhance interoperability of NATO and National NII components to support the
                required sharing of information.

                Improve the standardisation process concerning standardisation information exchange and
                sharing, to enhance interoperability between NATO and national capabilities; and

                Develop the appropriate architectures to support capability development and the definition of
                Service Interoperability Points, and the interoperability of NATO and national NII components.

              Governance and Regulatory Boundaries

              NATO C3 Organisation Charter.
              NC3A is governed by the NC3O Charter. This document establishes its mission and limits
              of authority and responsibility, both in terms of Agency operations and personnel/post
              contract administration.

              NATO Civilian Personnel Regulations
              The NATO Civilian Personnel Regulations (CPRs) delineate the rules and regulations by which
              the Agency acquires, retains and releases employees. These regulations impact NC3A’s
              strategy, as sufficient and competent human resources are the basis for all Agency success.

              Financial Regulation
              NC3A’s approved customer funding regime is governed by C-M(98)28 et Corrigendum dated
              19 May 98 and C-M(2004)0038 dated 8 Jun 04 which approved a modified set of NATO
              Financial Regulations.

              NC3A Deductions from Environmental Analysis
              Given these higher authorities intents’ NC3A’s strategic goals and themes from the Agency’s
              2008-2010 Strategic Plan remain extant:

              Strategic Goals:
                Be relied upon as a trusted Alliance partner;
                Deliver Coherence to NATO C4ISR;
                Provide efficient, unique, unbiased, and responsive high-quality support; and
                Deliver high-quality C4ISR capabilities, efficiently and impartially.

              Strategic Themes:
                Sponsor Partnership;
                Operational Excellence;
                Coherence Agent; and
                Exemplary Agency.

              They underpin NC3A’s key deductions (below) which have been derived from a Political-
              Military, Economic, Societal, Technological, Environmental and Legal & Legislative (PESTEL)2
              environmental analysis.

Key Deductions from NC3A’s PESTEL Analysis
Detailed analysis can be found at Annex A.

Political-Military
Article V will remain the cornerstone of NATO. Current operations will continue to be
expeditionary in nature and increasingly require a Comprehensive Approach; C4ISR will
be key to the success of operations. Our C4ISR solutions should offer dual-use (military-
civilian) capability, become more flexible, more deployable, have greater sustainability,
interoperability and be ruggedized, prompt in delivery and simple to use; our mindset,
operationally focused and delivery orientated. Critical to this for NATO and its partners,
will be adherence to NNEC standards, service frameworks and agreed architectures so
that we can deliver coherent capabilities that are validated, verified, can be integrated
and are interoperable. NC3A must help the Alliance recognise the C4ISR implications of a
Comprehensive Approach.

NC3A needs to improve its understanding of the political-military challenges the Alliance
faces and become more agile, in real time, to anticipate and meet the C4ISR needs of our
Alliance. In particular, we must be accountable to and focus on ‘the soldier’ and his needs,
especially on current operations; in effect, creating superiority in decision making by creating
superiority in information handling. However, for the longer term, NC3A must work closely
with NCSA, ACO, ACT and the nations to help clarify Capability Development roles within
NATO’s structure and a secure meaningful involvement of the nations within the new DPP. Our
ability to build relationships and communicate the value added NC3A brings to the Alliance
will be critical. To do so we must accept our responsibilities for capability delivery within
the C4ISR community and shift our stance to become more forward leaning, proactive and
anticipatory, shaping our environment and future. A test of our success will be gaining C4ISR
community support for the ‘4 Pillars’ initiatives that underpin NC3B C3 Capability objectives.

Economic
Due to pressures on defence spending, increased scrutiny and governance will apply broadly
to all NC3A sponsor accounts; we must be transparent in our dealings and give value for
money. We can deliver this in several ways. First, increasing internal NC3A efficiency by
focusing management on those areas that will make a difference to the way we execute our
business, such as increasing emphasis on a ‘Lifecycle DOTMLPFI Approach’ to our activities
and improving production efficiency while consolidating effectiveness. Second, engage
stakeholders internally and externally to reduce the length of the process of acquiring the
essential C4ISR military capability required by NATO forces in the field. Key to this are: clear
requirements capture and prioritisation; a spiral approach to development (60% of the
required capability now rather than 100% too late); full involvement from all stakeholders
throughout; and most importantly, getting ‘troops in the loop’ in the acquisition process.
Third, create an environment with stakeholders where they can come together to develop
solutions that meet national needs but also capabilities for the Alliance that when brought
together, are greater than the sum of their constituent parts. Fourth, exploit Commercial-Off-
the-Shelf (COTS), rapid technology insertion and existing military hardware’s Force Multiplier
capabilities. Five, support closer international cooperation on defence acquisition and
facilitate Multi-National Collaboration. Six, in NATO, Net Enabled (Leader Centric) Operations
have arrived. Users and commanders of NATO are seeking our help to re-use what they
have, either smarter and more effectively or in ways we never previous envisaged. Seven,
coherently map capability developments to avoid duplications and stovepipes, and deliver
coherent solutions.

As a philosophy, we should continue to develop and share best practice with other Agencies.

                                                                                       Strategic Plan 2010 - 2012




              NC3A exists to meet its sponsors’ C4ISR-related requirements and in a customer funded
              environment NC3A must examine, understand and position to meet sponsor’s needs.
              Detailed financial figures for 2010 are available in the Strategic Execution section of this plan.

                ACO’s focus on, and demand for, time-sensitive operational support (Crisis Response
                Operations and Short-to-near-term initial operational capability requirements) will grow in
                2010 but then stabilise in 2011-12.

                ACT will remain our prime sponsor, requiring programmes of work for Research and
                Development, Experimentation and other. There may be difficulties in the timely
                determination and sourcing of ACT programmes of work (POW) but we will continue to
                position our manpower to be ACT’s C4ISR provider of choice. In 2010-12, demand will not
                increase.

                NC3A anticipates speeding up delivery of NSIP long-term C4ISR acquisitions and its Crisis
                Response Operations requirements for which NC3A acts as Host Nation. There will be a
                slight increase in demand across 2010-12.

                NATO Nations account has grown consistently and will continue to grow in 2010-12 as the
                economic downturn and rising defence sector prices, encourage nations to seek NC3A’s servicesin
                particular as an unbiased facilitator and trusted agent in multi-national co-operations.

                The NC3B POW supports other NATO entities and programmes: ALTBMD, AGS and the
                multi-nation MAJIIC programme (Multi-sensor Aerospace-ground Joint ISR Interoperability
                Coalition). This activity will remain stable in 2010-12

              Societal
              Demographic changes, generational shifts and technological evolution will require us to
              address leadership development, staff expectations and skill sets in NC3A. Competencies
              in the provision and management of services that can become elements of loosely coupled
              federations, systems engineering, human-machine interface and the development and use of
              semantics and semantic relationships will increase. Execution of contracts renewals, training,
              recruiting and support services must take account of these changes.

              We must address the unfulfilled work demand through prioritising resources toward higher
              priority work and recruiting up to our PE while concurrently implementing a more flexible
              recruitment model which balances contracted, Core and rotational staff – near-term shortfalls,
              due to recruitment timelines, should be made up by contractors.

              Technological
              There will be an evolution in technology not a revolution. We must lever existing technology to
              prepare for multiple futures and do things smarter for our sponsors, by taking a Technology Lead
              and Watch role in NATO, to anticipate technologies and capabilities of increasing interest to NATO:
              communications services; C2 systems that support smaller operational footprints and ensure
              spectrum availability; dual-use military-civilian systems; acceleration of Cyber Defence capabilities;
              Theatre Missile Defence; the force multiplier capability of ISR; critical C4ISR enabling capabilities
              such as Information Assurance and Power/Energy Efficient technologies; technologies that require
              increased processing power (holographic visualisation, robotics, geo-referencing and artificial
              intelligence); and disruptive technologies or ‘black swans’. As the home of information technology,
              NC3A should continue close cooperation with RTO, nations and industry on technology and
              internally assess capabilities before recommending them to our sponsors.

              Environmental
              Changes in the environment affect all Alliance members’ security interests. NATO may
              increasingly need to rapidly find original responses to resolve crisis in existing or new
              environments, such as the High North or as part of a new CIMIC role. NC3A will need to take
              on the responsibility to help NATO address the C4ISR implications such as finding solutions
              for command and control between Gov & Non-Gov organisations and to Civil Agencies.
              Above all, NC3A must remain flexible and postured to support NATO in uncertain times.

Legal/Legislation
NC3A will need to facilitate legal relationships/frameworks and multi-national funded
activities, such as MAJIIC for increased interactions with nations and industry (e.g. Framework
agreements and FFCI Initiative).

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats

NC3A’s Strengths:

NC3A has unique expertise, capabilities, competencies and facilities. It is multinational and
unbiased in its construct and approach, and is positioned as a Strategic Partner with NATO’s Strategic
Commands and all other military and civilian elements of NATO and has extensive partnering and
staff exchanges with Nations. NC3A must enhance these strengths and relationships.

NC3A’s Weaknesses:
Lack of communication with our stakeholders and lack of formal tracability over the lifecycle
reflecting best effort, which leads to a perceptions of NC3A’s technological arrogance in
our dealings with stakeholders; NC3A must communicate better and listen more to our
stakeholders, be more transparent and present ourselves and our message correctly.

We are inconsistent in the quality of our product and need to establish a better quality control
mechanism over product development and release.

We can take too long to deliver capability because we do not consistently commit to a one
scope, time, cost result orientated approach. We must accept we are part of the problem but
not the only part, and be both more disciplined in our approach and initiate a campaign to
engage all stakeholders in examining and correcting the problem through initiatives such
as ‘4 Pillars (Acquisition Reform)’.

NC3A is perceived to work in stovepipes and duplicating effort instead of following a
comprehensive and coherent approach.

Opportunities:
Difficult economic conditions may drive nations to favour national industries and seek
collaborative defence investment. NC3A can help these nations and must raise its profile
and explain its ‘value proposition’, to do so.

Difficult economic conditions could lead to delays in NATO spending or spending rates. NC3A
should execute an aggressive programme of work and improve its capacity, delivery and
processes in order to exploit opportunities that do arise and live up to our predictions and
promises. NC3A must do so with a clear understanding of the risks and be flexible enough
to pull back, if a pessimistic threat environment emerges.

Currently, a large number of very high calibre people are seeking employment and we should
aim to recruit the cream while the opportunity lasts.

There may be a possible role as technology focus (beyond C4ISR) in the 2013+ timeframe
and/or a NATO Communications Intelligence (COMINT) role. NC3A must be cognisant of
these possible roles in the next few years.

NATO structures reform would be an opportunity to bring about some of the changes required,
especially in resourcing decision making and the responsiveness necessary for operational support
in the C4ISR domain. It should lead to a Capability Development (CD) process necessary for C4ISR
– not one for all types of CD. NC3A’s 4 Pillars ‘Acquisition Reform’ initiative may help in this regard.

              Threats:
              Overall economic environment will cause fluctuations and uncertainty with respect to budget
              allocation to the strategic commands and the NSIP.

              In the mid-to-long term, C4ISR funding in ISAF could reduce to ensure funds are available
              for ISAF NATO HQ’s construction.

              There is a possibility that the opportunities and threats in the Arctic draw NATO’s attention
              and resources away from current areas of operation. NC3A must be cognisant of these factors
              and begin to position accordingly.

              NC3A is perceived to be expensive. We must communicate our ‘value proposition’ to balance
              this perception and clearly articulate our cost compared to industry and other NATO/National
              organisations in our field, e.g. through understanding respective capitation rates.

Strategic Execution
NC3A’s Mission
Enable NATO’s success through the unbiased provision of comprehensive C4ISR capabilities.

Execution - Concept of Operations

Management Policy Board’s (MPB) Intent
The MPB’s intent is to begin positioning NC3A to support NATO’s new Strategic Concept
when it is released, using the markers from Strasbourg-Kehl summit as our guide. We will
underpin NC3B’s C3 Capability objectives, and consolidate as a Strategy Focused Organisation.

We aim to anticipate and meet the C4ISR needs of the Alliance and secure the resources to
meet sponsor’s demand and concurrently reduce the year-on-year Bow-wave of unfulfilled
demand to a minimally appropriate level. As an entity we will accept accountability and
responsibility to deliver capability that is needed, when it is needed and where it is needed
by our sponsors and users. We intend to give our sponsors ‘value for money’, be transparent
in our dealings and communicate to the wider C4ISR community our ‘value proposition’
and what we believe: ‘NATO is first and foremost’ and ‘working together for NATO’ is in all
our actions.

Operations will remain our primary focus and we will actively support a Comprehensive
Approach. We will bring a culture to NC3A that emphasizes individual and collective
accountability to our service men and women and a focus on them as the common link
between them and the C4ISR community. We have listened to and heard users on operations,
and will help find smarter uses for the capability they have now, while remaining alert for
new technologies that may enable them to work smarter.

NC3A intend to take an approach to users, sponsors, industry and partners that allows us
collectively to optimally develop initial operational capabilities for the Alliance that are ‘good
enough’ and final operational capabilities that when brought together, are greater than
the sum of their constituent parts. We will avoid competition with industry but improve
industry’s ability to participate and compete in the NATO environment. We intend to continue
developing and sharing best practice within NC3A and NATO.

Our intent to recruit the best, retain the best and create the right conditions for them to excel
remains extant. We aim to develop our leaders to play a full role in NATO’s future.

We intend to consolidate our role as home of information technology in NATO and live
up to our responsibility to bring clarity and guidance on essential C4ISR issues. We aim to
communicate better and listen harder.

Our focus will be forward leaning, proactive and anticipatory and NC3A will shape its
environment and future.

Scheme of Manoeuvre
Our Scheme of Manoeuvre is to continue our multi year transformation to becoming a
Strategy Focused Organisation by making our strategy operational within resource parameters
(staffing and cost); specifically targeting those elements that make a difference: operational
focus; timeliness of delivery; quality of output; process improvement; and prioritisation of
activity. In line with the Agency’s Balanced Scorecard we will execute our twelve strategic
objectives (Internal Processes objectives and Learning & Growth objectives) and attain
our four Alliance or Sponsor strategic goals, binding both goals and objectives to realistic
measures, metrics, targets and Strategic Initiatives. The General Manager and individual
Directors will be responsible, through their Champion role, for the successful delivery of
strategic goals or objectives.

NC3A will identify key stakeholders and through MPB members and senior managers,
engage those stakeholders to build relationships to anticipate and better understand the
environment and sponsor’s needs. Relationship building and closer engagement with
our partners in the C4ISR community will be increased through more frequent formal and
informal communication. Internal communications shall be expanded and improved. We
will engage our partners in the C4ISR community in a campaign to address the ‘4 Pillars’ of

                                                                                  Strategic Plan 2010 - 2012




              activity that are strategically significant to the C4ISR community: Acquisition Reform; A
              Federated Validation and Verification Environment; Services Framework and Standards, and
              Architectures (Annex B).

              Our new DSAs for ACO, NN and ACT will develop Customer Relationship Management tools
              and an NC3A Service Catalogue. Combined with scaled up Liaison, this shall increase the
              quality of direct interaction with sponsors. Through closer liaison we will endeavour to get
              ‘troops in the loop’ in spiral acquisition and capability development processes. Concurrently,
              DOP and COO initiatives to improve the efficiency and quality of NC3A’s production processes
              shall deliver better products and guarantee delivery times within cost. Integrating our
              management systems – time accounting, financial management and enterprise project
              management – will occur. CTO’s cross NC3A coherence and DOP’s cross-CAT coherence
              activities plus DSA’s product acceptance responsibilities, shall be matured and become
              integral to deliverable quality assurance. Additional governance over the Strategic Initiative
              Programme, individual DSA performance and CAT performance shall be carried out through
              a regular review process conducted by the Agency’s P3 Board. Delivering our CPOW and
              reducing the year-on-year bow wave of unfulfilled demand will be closely managed by the
              P3 Board. Managing progress toward meeting NC3A’s Key Management Assumptions, shall
              be the MPB’s responsibility.

              Following an internal review, NC3A’s mix between contractors, core staff and rotational staff
              will be changed to create a more agile model that can respond better to fluctuations in
              demand and competency needs. More contractors will be employed to increase agility and
              flexibility and reduce risk and fill gaps caused by surge needs. DRES shall actively campaign
              to recruit the highest quality staff during the economic downturn - staff numbers will
              increase slightly. Through the Peer Competency Networks (PCN), Performance Management
              initiative and Management Excellence programme we shall invest in our staff and leaders,
              endeavouring to develop their qualities, competencies and education. DRES-led initiatives
              to increase technical support, improve facilities and share internally proven best practice
              aim to create a more productive working environment.

              Strategy Map
              Our Strategy Map is the pinnacle of cascading strategies. Beneath it are DSA and Segment
              strategies and beneath them, CAT and RCM strategies. The Strategy Map is best understood
              by reading from the bottom upwards. Learning & Growth strategic objectives aim to
              develop our primary resource – our staff – and form the bedrock for development of our
              Internal Processes objectives. The Internal Processes strategic objectives aim to enhance
              one, sometimes two, of the Agency’s Strategic themes (Sponsor Partnership, Operational
              Excellence, Coherence Agent, Exemplary Agency). Successful execution of the Internal
              Processes strategic objectives supports other strategic objectives and/or our four Sponsor
              or Alliance focused Strategic Goals. The combined execution of the strategic objectives and
              fulfilment of strategic goals, within the context of our values, enables NC3A to succeed in its
              mission and move toward its vision.

                                                          Capacity Requirement
                                                          To deliver the programme of work, NC3A requires a workforce comprised of NATO civilian staff
                                                          members, military members and contractors. NC3A analysis of the forecasted demand reflects
                                                          a need for an increase of 7% above current workforce levels for those directly employed on
                                                          the work of the sponsors and about 4% in the indirect workforce.

                                                          Within the workforce directly employed on sponsors’ funded work, the staff component would
                                                          increase by only 1% while the contracted workforce would grow by 54%. Overall, contracted
                                                          capacity will increase to 12-20% of that required to deliver the POW. This demonstrates
                                                          NC3A’s increase use of “contracted workforce” within the execution of the programme of work.

Note: Potential Use of NC3A Operating Fund
The amount of the operating fund at €15.4M (as of 1 Jan 2009) is being analyzed with a view
to potential reduction. The operating fund has the dual purpose of being a source of working
capital as well as a repository for surplus or deficit net results from the NC3A mandated intent
to break-even over time within the complexity of the customer funded financial regime.

C-M(98)28 guidance for NC3A is that the operating fund should equate to about three months’
turnover. Given this guidance the fund could, for 2010, be established in the range of €28-
31M. However, due to the fact that NC3A continues to receive advances from sponsors and
relatively rapid payment of its invoices, consideration is being given to recommend for 2010
that a more suitable guideline might be one to two months’ turnover, which for 2010 would
imply an operating fund of about €10.3M.

The rules governing increases or decreases in the operating fund provide that such increases /
decreases be achieved by increasing or lowering the charge-out rate. Therefore, management
is considering not only the achievement of a flat rate 2010 over 2009, but a further potential
decrease in the charge out rate for the civilian staff by 2%-3%. This approach would be
sustained for 2011 if the agency cash flow and operating condition permits.

Summary of Financial Performance
Overall, financial performance is the result of the above four sections. Additionally, this takes
in consideration that NC3A has to maintain a financial break-even over time.                        1
