FGDC NGAC Public-Private Partnerships Briefing on June 3, 2021


FGDC’s National Geospatial Advisory Committee (NGAC) held an informational briefing on Public-Private Partnerships on Thursday, June 3.

The purpose of the briefing was to share the results and recommendations from the NGAC’s recent paper, “Advancing the National Spatial Data Infrastructure through Public-Private Partnerships and other Innovative Partnerships,” which was adopted in December 2020.

The briefing included an overview of the findings and recommendations in the paper, as well as examples from the partnership use cases.
