Forming Military-Community Partnerships Around Shared Services Webinar
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
This NCSL webinar is the second of two in a series of educational webinars designed to help state legislators and legislative staff understand the role of state legislatures in communication and cooperation between military bases and surrounding communities.
While military bases are federally owned and operated, there are a number of policy options for states to explore to ensure smooth military operations while also protecting the safety and vitality of nearby cities and towns.
Speakers discussed shared services agreements, which allow the military and local governments to “share”—combine, consolidate or purchase—municipal or support services such as infrastructure, utilities, or other operations and maintenance services. Strategic military-civilian partnerships of shared services can help communities and the military find ways to reduce costs while playing a role in ensuring an environment for compatible local economic development and the sustainment of installation mission readiness.
