Partnering on Defense Projects




The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) first applied partnering on their construction projects, with success. Then the Department of Defense became proactive in adapting this team building technique to improve the organizational culture of their systems acquisition contracts and on their service contracts.
The U.S. Army Material Command (AMC) Command Council Office guided the defense industry into the use of project partnering as an element of their acquisition reform program. They developed "The Bridge to Partnership" illustration to show the benefits of government contractor partnering with defense contractors. NAVFAC proved its teambuilding benefits on their Base Operating Support Service contacts.
