U.S. Department of State, Secretary’s Global Partnership Initiative (S/GPI):

S/GPI is another entry point for collaboration between the U.S. Department of State, the public and private sectors, and civil society. Launched in 2009, S/GPI aims to strengthen and deepen U.S. diplomacy and development around the world through partnerships that leverage the creativity, innovation, and core business resources of partners for greater impact. For more information on S/GPI and their work, please visit their homepage.

S/GPI has also developed the Partnership Toolkit. Resources posted include a list of case studies, partnership process maps, legal guidelines, factsheets, and metrics guidelines.


U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID):

Public-private partnerships for development, including Global Development Alliances (GDAs), have gained notable reputation and accountability. These alliances have proven to be beneficial for both business and society. USAID and the Office of Innovation and Development Alliances/Global Partnerships Division, the stewards of the GDA program, have provided the following tools and resources to assist private sector organizations and implementing partners in building public-private partnerships.

Resources include tools on how to build GDAs, a database of information on public-private partnerships and GDAs across the entire Agency, and a guide for companies on how to build partnerships with USAID.


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Public-Private Partnerships in PEPFAR Countries Project (CDC P4):

CDC has awarded a five-year cooperative agreement to Cardno Emerging Markets USA, Ltd. (Cardno) to support the efforts of CDC to scale-up public-private partnerships under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). CDC P4 serves as a “Global Secretariat” by assisting CDC to administer a growing number of PPPs. CDC P4 has developed its PPP Toolkit with the aim to ensure U.S. government public health PPPs are maximizing their impact and results towards achieving PEPFAR goals. The PPP Toolkit’s templates and guidelines are available for download on the project’s website.

Resources include Branding Guidelines, a Guidance Note and Quick Reference Guide for Tracking the Contributions of Participating Stakeholders to Public-Private Partnerships, and the CDC P4 Contributions Tracking Tool.


CDC Foundation:

Authorized by Congress, the CDC Foundation was created to facilitate partnerships between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the private sector. In that role, the CDC Foundation helps ensure that programs will have a meaningful impact for CDC, complement CDC’s priorities and ongoing work, and present no conflict of interest for CDC or the CDC Foundation. To help address questions about its relationship with CDC and its partnership-building process, CDC Foundation has developed a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. They have also posted links to several documents outlining CDC's policies for working with partner organizations.
