NATO's Evaluation and Observation Requirements Discussed at Joint Support and Enabling Command

ULM, Germany - During the two-day Evaluation Programming and Management Board (EPMB) II on 25 and 26 October, 2022, representatives from more than a dozen NATO commands like the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) that chaired the meeting, the Allied Maritime Command and the Multinational Corps South East came together at the Joint Support and Enabling Command (JSEC) in Ulm to discuss NATO's evaluation and observation requirements.

Colonel Jacek Ropejko, Branch Head of SHAPE’s Evaluation Branch and chairman of the EPMB II, welcomed the participants to the meeting and thanked JSEC for its support in hosting the event in the Wilhelmsburg Barracks.

The purpose of the EPMB is to identify requirements, recommend priorities, align approved evaluation and observation requirements with available resources, and to synchronize evaluation or observation activities with the military training and exercise programme in order to avoid time and cost consuming efforts.

The bi-annual programming body ensures that all NATO evaluation and observation requirements meet Supreme Allied Commander Europe’s (SACEUR) Annual Guidance on Education, Training, Exercise and Evaluation – a necessary basic requirement to keep NATO troops and materiel prepared and ready to deter and defend any aggressor against NATO territory.
