Administrative history

This chronological series contains the memoranda of the Standing Group (SG). With the exception of the SGMs produced when the SG met in Paris from 25 to 28 April 1956 (reference SGM(Paris) 1-56 to 4-56), all were produced by the secretariat of the SG in Washington. These memoranda were often used to transmit: -decisions of the Military Committee (MC) and the SG to the NATO high commands and the SG agencies -instructions and interpretations resulting from these decisions The first SG memorandum (SGM) was published on 11 October 1949 and the last on 24 October 1966. After the Standing Group was disbanded in 1967, the chronological series of Military Committee memoranda (MCMs) succeeded the SGMs.

Scope and content

Most of the SGMs give instructions for greater effectiveness of actions, reports, studies, inspections and surveys conducted, as well as of participation in meetings, organization of travel and conferences, etc.
Some SGMs submit documents received to the service responsible, for approval, revision or further study.
Others are memoranda of the International Planning Team (IPT) of the Standing Group or the Logistics and Materials Planning Team (LMPT) of the Standing Group in response to questions and problems raised with the SG. The two teams provided information on the work already conducted, gave their own responses and suggested actions to be carried out to the SG, the Military Representatives Committee (MRC), the Steering Committee (SG/SC), and the committees and agencies of the SG.
For greater effectiveness, a response regarding the action to be carried out was submitted for approval along with the majority of these SGMs.
The SGM(PARIS)s deal with NATO's future common infrastructure programme.
