EU Contractor Support to Operations Platform


After consultations with governmental authorities and different economic operators the EU Contractor Support to Operations (CSO) Platform was launched on 29 Nov 13. The EU CSO Platform replaces the demonstrator version “Third Party Logistics Support (TPLS) Platform”, which has been online since 2009 and will consequently be closed down. All TPLS accounts were transferred to the EU CSO Platform. All users of governmental authorities as well as economic operators are invited to register via the link below.

The European Union Contractor Support to Operations (CSO) Platform serves as a forum for interaction between experts from national authorities and potential or actual contractors, suppliers or service providers (economic operators) to exchange information in order to support the identification of commercial solutions for operational needs.

The platform was launched by the European Defence Agency (EDA) in November 2013 as a successor of the Third Party Logistic Support (TPLS) Platform and consists of a publicly accessible and a restricted domain for registered governmental experts and economic operators.

Please refer to the Help feature on the EU CSO Platform if you have any questions how to register.
