The Army has a growing need to collaborate and partner with industry. This document describes three nontraditional approaches to that goal, namely (1) forming real-estate public-private partnerships (PPPs), (2) using Army venture capital mechanisms as a research and development funding and collaborating tool, and (3) spinning off Army activities into federal government corporations (FGCs).The research shows that while the three concepts appear promising, each requires resolution of key issues before it can be seriously considered for implementation.
