SCJ9-Public Private Cooperation (PPC) WHAT IS IT? Cooperation and collaboration with partners… – NGO – Business – Academia…to create communities of interest/action in support of security and stability in the region.
Value Added to the Private Sector It needs to make good business sense Showcase Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives (Transform the way the customer sees your products and your company ) Leverage association with the U.S. military (and its perceived values - stability, strength, growth) Build better situational awareness (Market Intelligence) Foot in the door for future business opportunities (Network on a local and national level)
Why Work with Businesses & NGOs? Underscore linkage between security and economic development (reinforce sense of social responsibility) Leverage resources and expertise of specialized communities Reinforce NGO/business stake in stabilizing countries and regions Develop advocates for DoD activities/goals Develop sense of common purpose
Legal Guidelines No “outsourcing” of essential tasks No solicitations for support No direct donations No quid pro quos No exclusivity
Types of PPC Engagements Discussion of security/development interrelationship – Interaction at multiple levels with Chambers of Commerce, trade associations, CEOs, Academic Centers, etc. Analytical work on key challenges – Study on vulnerabilities of drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) Drug Trafficking Organization Report Operational Cooperation May 2010 – Steady state – sustainment of exercise Business Executives for National Security construction projects; New Horizons/Beyond the Horizon/ Continuing Promise missions – Crisis – contribution of resources, transportation, expertise 12 to meet critical humanitarian needs
