Public Private Partnerships
Membership: Dues and Don’ts
• Some Do - SECOORA, NERACOOS
and GLOS
• Some Don’t - feel that membership is
open to all
• Provides sources of non-Federal funds,
source of “rainy day” funds
GoMOOS: Ahead of its time?
• Precursor to
NERACOOS
• Jobs from the sea
• Regional Utility
• Owned assets
• Contract provisions on
Intellectual property
• Data sharing
• Market research
Lessons Learned
• Government provides long
term commitment
• Foundations - O&M is
challenge
• Boston LNG permit
requirement- could be
something to pursue more,
BOEM, leasing of public trust
resources should require
monitoring
Lessons Learned, con’t.
• Lack of national
observations hinders
development of national
value-added products
• RA Capacity
• Private sector concerns
about unfair competition

Intellectual property - can address through
contracts but what is?
• Asset ownership – GoMOOS owned assets
(buoys, etc)
• Challenges:
• Everyone’s #2 Priority
• Oil spill, Hurricanes, SAR,
• Enabling utility - who funds?
• Private comp do not want to pay – PORTS
FAC help:
• Practical advice for diversifying and growing
funding for IOOS - there is an urgency
• What are IOOS strategic advantages?
• How to focus limited resources? Where is the
ROI that would be attractive?
• How to fund an enabler?
• Build high level interagency leadership –
Summit recommendation
Questions?
Enabling IOOS
• IOOS is enabler … but
• How to enable IOOS to do it’s job?
• No one funds an enabler - Private
sector and public want to fund those
that deliver
– NWS is not funding IOOS
– CG is not funding IOOS
– Navy exercise –
