Managing Partnerships: Multi-Party Arrangements
This topic examines the opportunities and challenges that are created when multiple parties work together to deliver public services. Specifically, it addresses the prospects for cooperation across jurisdictions. As importantly, it discusses the benefits and risks associated with public private partnerships (PPPs), which involve cooperation between public and private sector organizations in the delivery of public services.
