Annual report and accounts

In 2016, the Armed Forces spent a total of 27.7 billion Norwegian kroner – around 3.25 billion US dollars.

​​​​​​The apparent fall in spending from 2015 to 2016, is due to the establishment of the Norwegian Defence ​Materiel Agency​ (NDMA) on 1 January 2016. 

The NDMA is responisble for all procurements and large investments to the Norwegian Armed Forces – including F-35s​ and new infantry fighting vehicles​. The investment figures are inclu​ded in the Armed Forces' financial frames until 2015, but from 2016 and onwards, they fall under the NDMA's separate budget.

​In 2016, the NDMA had a financial frame of 12.6 billion Norwegian kroner, making it a grand total of 40.2 billion Norwegian kroner (apx. 4.7 billion ​​USD) for both organisations.
