The Secretariat General of Defence and National Armaments Directorate (SGD/NAD) is the organization of the Italian Ministry of Defence that promotes the Italian defence industries and sponsors the systems produced by these industries autonomously or, as is often the case, through international cooperation.


Within this context the Secretary General and National Armaments Director (SG/NAD) is responsible for research and technological development, as well as for the procurement of weapon systems. He participates in top level international meetings within the framework of the implementation of multinational agreements, he chairs the Consultive Committee, which examines the most important contracts in the armaments sector.


Among his own tasks the SG/NAD coordinates and manages the activities of four Directorates General. In compliance with a recent reform, the five technical Directorates responsible for procurement now report directly to him.
