This study explores designing and building
performance measurement systems (PMSs) in the context of university-public
organization collaborations. In the case organization, using the current literature
on university partnerships and public sector performance measurement, we
present, empirically test, and elaborate on a process model for designing and
building PMSs for university-public organization collaboration. The empirical section of this study discusses building PMSs to evaluate
university-public organization collaboration with a collaborative research and
development project between a university and a public dental healthcare
organization as the empirical case. The study’s results reveal that building PMSs for university-public
organization collaboration can support the management of such collaborations with
both public and university project managers. The results also reveal that
building PMSs can help to overcome the challenges related to measuring performance
in the public sector and university partnerships.
