Use of Public-Private Partnerships to Meet Future Army Needs

Excerpt

This report documents the principal findings of a study on exploring innovative ways for acquiring advanced technologies to meet future Army needs-namely, using public-private partnerships (PPPs). This report is an updated and expanded version of a paper presented at the Army Materiel Command (AMC) Executive Steering Committee meeting in April 1997. At that time, the focus of the study was limited to generating revenue from research and development (R&D) opportunities and infrastructure assets. The research was broadened to examine other advantages of PPPs. This report examines the overall utility of PPPs from the Army's perspective.

The research was sponsored by Mr. Michael Fisette, Principal Deputy for Technology, HQ AMC, and was conducted within the Force Development and Technology Program of the RAND Arroyo Center. The Arroyo Center is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the United States Army.

The findings should be of interest to Army audiences addressing strategies for developing advanced technology as well as those concerned with infrastructure assets and installation closures. This research was completed and approved for public release in 1998.
