Abstract : Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in defense have gained momentum in various countries around the world over the past decade. This research project explores the experiences and evolutions of PPPs in the United Kingdom (UK), the United States (U.S.), Australia, and Singapore. Each of these countries has its own unique fiscal system, operating environment, and defense focus. It is timely to study how defense PPPs has evolved around the world since their inception in the UK in the 1990s. Through the study of these four countries' journeys into defense PPPs, the objective of this project is to first determine whether there are any key common denominators that steer the countries toward the adoption of PPPs to meet their defense needs. The next objective is to determine whether PPPs are suitable for defense acquisitions. The final objective is to determine whether there are specific areas in defense that are more suitable than others for PPPs.
