The study investigates Public Private Ventures (PPV) as a new, evolving approach to the Marine CorpsÎ± housing needs at Marine Corps Base (MCB) Camp Pendleton. The study examined the emerging transformation of housing construction and property management responsibilities and risks from the Government to the private sector developer. Specifically, the study sought to answer two primary research questions: â How can the Navy improve construction management? â What are the differences between Military Construction (MILCON) and Public Private Venture (PPV) business agreements for construction management? The study surveyed potential Public Private Venture (PPV) developers and current housing construction contractorsÎ± attitudes towards the NavyÎ±s recent trend in the design, construction, and maintenance of Marine Corps military family housing. The researcherÎ±s major conclusion concerns the uniqueness of Public Private Venture (PPV) and Military Construction (MILCON) contract management. Each approach requires different skills, operates at different speeds, and requires separate functional teams. Successful contractors form Limited Liability Corporations (LLC) and adopt strategies consistent with that conclusion. The studyÎ±s major recommendation favors Government maintenance of central housing operations with both Navy and Marine Corps assets organized at the headquarters of the Southwest Division. This would provide the expertise to work on real-time housing issues.
