Abstract : The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking better ways to make decisions that accomplish our environmental mission and also generate broad support from other agencies and interests. Such support will lead to quicker implementation and improved cost effectiveness, and will permit us to anticipate and prevent unnecessary conflict. Partnering is one of a variety of tools to meet these needs. Partnering was first employed in the chemical and construction industries in an effort to reduce expensive litigation and delays. In the late 1980s, the Corps of Engineers and the Naval Facilities Engineering Command began to use partnering on construction projects. The result has been a significant savings in time and dollars. All DOD Services have now begun using partnering to further the Department's environmental mission. The Services use partnering on all levels-policy, program, and project-and engage state, local, and federal regulators in the process. Partnering is clearly useful for installation cleanup and can benefit DOD compliance, pollution prevention, and conservation programs as well.
