Combat support agency (CSA) is a designation by the United States Department of Defence (DoD) of those defence agencies that provide department-level and tactical support to the US military during combat operations.
The designation was first outlined by the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defence Reorganisation Act of 1986, with subsequent additions based on the department’s needs. The designation includes several intelligence agencies under DoD, which have a national mandate in addition to their departmental combat support role.
