DOD Instruction 4151.21 Public-Private Partnerships for Product Support defines public-private partnerships as “a cooperative arrangement between an organic product support provider and one or more private sector entities to perform defense-related work, use DoD facilities and equipment, or both. Other government organizations, such as program offices, inventory control points, and sustainment commands, may be parties to such agreements.” It also states, “…use of PPPs by DoD Components is encouraged to facilitate innovation and creative thinking. Accordingly, PPPs will be considered to enable the best use of public and private sector capabilities, and to improve product support provided by the Centers of Industrial and Technical Excellence (CITEs).” In addition to the DoD Instruction 4151.21 and other related documents below, other key resources include the DoD Public-Private Partnerships for Sustainment Guidebook and a comprehensive Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) ACQuipedia Article containing links to a range of other resources and references.
Keep in mind that Partnerships are a Cooperative Effort, Not a Competitive Engagement.
