All over the world, a movement towards working together between governments and other public, private and nonprofit actors is taking place (Atkinson and Coleman 1996; Auditor General of Canada 1999a; Coleman and Skogstad 1990). Networks and partnering are becoming common place in the public sector and there are now a wide variety of such arrangements (OECD 1999). Public Private Partnerships (PPP), for example, refer to joint efforts by government entities and private organizations to provide services or facilities directly. Found in a wide variety of policy areas such as defense, education, health and highways, PPP are more than financial arrangements. Joint streams of public and private money bring joint responsibilities in service delivery and represent a new organizational machinery for delivering public services.
