Sometimes the private sector works in coordination with the public sector. By partnering with the private sector through arrangements which leverage governmental assets and resources, opportunities are provided for the privates sector to participate in the financing, development, ownership and operation of a public facility or service. For example, a public/private partnership could be an arrangement whereby third party or contractor develops and operates a system which is beneficial to a government agency and others and charges the cost of the service to users.
