This concern can be alleviated by making sure that those making budget decisions are aware of the utility of PPPs and understand how budget decisions affect the realization of that utility. In this respect, regulatory guidance may be appropriate. Alternatively, revenue-generating PPPs can be fashioned so that the Army's return comes in in-kind payments rather than cash payments. This report shows that PPPs can return benefits to the Army that may not be possible with other types of agreements. The Army can use PPPs to optimize the utility of excess capacity infrastructure and its store of intellectual property.

We encourage the Army to exploit the range of opportunities PPPs offer to help it meet its military needs, and we recommend that proposed PPP ideas be examined using the screening method presented in this report. Page xxi Acknowledgments The authors wish to thank Richard Montgomery, RAND consultant, for proposing and developing the equity fund concept; John Stainback, Ernst & Young, for sharing his thoughts on public-private development ventures; James D. ) Vince Russo, for reviewing some of the revenue-generation concepts.

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.
