Institutional Support for Agency Partnerships: Exploring Personnel Perception and Website Content

Abstract
1.0 Abstract The USDA Forest Service increasingly engages partners to accomplish agency goals and enhance public services. In an age of fiscal constraints, partnerships continue to be an alternative management strategy. Previous research on recreational partnership has primarily explored the key elements of partnership success. Knowledge is limited regarding the structure of agency partnership, including the institutional characteristics, conditions and mechanisms necessary to foster a vibrant partnership culture. This paper briefly summarizes results from an online questionnaire administered to agency personnel on 12 randomly selected forests. Findings reveal a norm of partnerships may be replacing the internal support characteristics necessary to maintain a vibrant partnership culture.
