The NMCI is the first third level college in the country to be built under the Government’s Public-Private Partnership scheme.
A Public-Private Partnership (PPP) is a partnership between the public and private sector for the purpose of delivering a project or service traditionally provided by the public sector.
in this case the public partners are the Naval Service and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) and the private partner is Focus Education. This model allows the college management and teaching staff to concentrate on education while the private partner is responsible for services to the college and the maintenance of facilities.
