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.


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

Cardno’s P4 Project is funded by the Centers for Disease for Control and Prevention (CDC) to support the management and scale-up of public-private partnerships (PPP) under PEPFAR. Managing the first phase (2009-2015) and now the second phase (2015-2020) of P4, Cardno collaborates with CDC and the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) to leverage the resources of the U.S. Government and private sector to meet the PEPFAR goals of improved health outcomes, sustainability, and country ownership. P4 Project also assists in identifying private sector partners and evaluates the impact and contribution of PPPs to PEPFAR’s HIV/AIDS care, treatment, and prevention goals. P4 Project developed the P4 PPP Toolkit to improve efficiency and effectiveness of these PPPs.

Tools include Branding Guidelines, Quick Reference Guide for Tracking the Contributions of Participating Stakeholders to PPPs, Contributions Tracking Tool, Subawardee Risk Assessment Matrix and Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.

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.
