Academic Institution

The University of Maryland is a top ranked public research institution of higher learning with no less than 70 graduate programs in the top 25 academic institutions in the United States. The distinguished faculty and staff of University of Maryland include a Nobel Prize winner, six Pulitzer Prize winners, and scores of Fulbright Scholars. The University contributions to the Department of Defense and the Federal Government accounted for about $50 million and more than $200 million of funded research last year.

The Center for Public Policy and Private Enterprise (CPPPE) provides the strategic linkage between the public and private sector to develop and improve solutions to increasingly complex problems associated with the delivery of public services - a responsibility all the more shared by both sectors. Operating at the nexus of public and private interests, the Center researches, develops, and promotes best practices; develops policy recommendations; and strives to influence senior decision-makers.

Augmenting the proposed staff and experimental facilities are CPPPE’s current and ongoing developments and demonstrations in support of DoD acquisitions. Specifically, CPPPE has spearheaded the development of focused logistics concepts, supply chain portals, and sense and respond networks. CPPPE has also been instrumental in the development of strategies, policy, and recommendations to improve DoD acquisition implementation. Using this combination of cutting edge technology, best business practices, and public policy the University strives to balance the interests of both the public sector and industry.
