Public–private partnerships (PPPs) have become common inter-organizational arrangements associated with “new public management.” Discussion about their effective operation has often focused on successful management methods, with less discussion about how these arrangements specifically overcome obstacles and problems.

We conclude by identifying several lessons from this case that we believe should inform the design of such systems, one of which is the role of knowledge management.
