“In their report, Dean Klitgaard and Professor Treverton describe the concept of partnerships between organizations in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors. The report describes why public sector organizations should consider partnerships with nonprofit or private sector entities, and presents a detailed checklist that public sector executives can use to assess the costs and benefits of such partnerships. Based on their analysis of recent trends in society, Klitgaard and Treverton conclude that the use of partnerships and collaboration is likely to increase in the decade ahead. If their assessment is correct, it thus becomes increasingly important for government executives to have a conceptual framework and criteria for deciding whether and when to engage in partnerships with organizations in other sectors. In this report, the authors provide such a framework and criteria.”
