Abstract
My research seeks to present Public Private Partnerships in the delivery of welfare services most especially within a developing country context. I use a project case located in the South West region of Cameroon called RUMPI, jointly financed by the African Development Bank and Government of Cameroon to assess partnership contribution of two different types of institutions partnering for welfare delivery within the New Public Management context. I seek to establish the rationale of the RUMPI project with respect to service delivery and public policy formation.

My research seeks to present Public Private Partnerships in the delivery of welfare services most especially within a developing country context. I use a project case located in the South West region of Cameroon called RUMPI, jointly financed by the African Development Bank and Government of Cameroon to assess partnership contribution of two different types of institutions partnering for welfare delivery within the New Public Management context. I seek to establish the rationale of the RUMPI project with respect to service delivery and public policy formation. My focus is on the strategic build of the partnership relationship in the attainment of welfare benefits in the state of Cameroon. In essence I use partnerships to denote “working arrangements based on a mutual commitment (over and above that implied in any contract) between a public sector organization with any other organization outside the public service” (Boviad 2004, P. 200). My use of the theory of Organisational partnerships is to establish the partnership relationship between the government of Cameroon and the African Development Bank for the RUMPI project, while the theory and practice of Collaborative advantage is used to build themes in collaboration as they both contribute to welfare delivery. To accomplish my task, I use interviews, discussions and observations to build on the strategic partnership and its contribution to welfare delivery. In my analysis I discovered that the RUMPI project greatly contributed to welfare delivery in the country though flawed by problems of a marriage betwen two different types of organisations having different styles of management. It was also discovered that the welfare contribution of the RUMPI project was just a miles stone in a country that has a large percentage of its population below the poverty line. (Less)
