Closed Post Implications
Main Cantonment Area
  • Park tenant employees register vehicles
    and carry post ID cards (cost
    reimbursable to Army)
  • Park traffic can use all four main gates
  • Park visitors register at gates
  • Same as at a large industrial or research
  • As currently in effect, entry onto post
    is consent to search
  • Park tenant employees must obey
    installation regs
  • Increased security will be seen as plus by

Whats Different from other Enhanced Use Lease
  • Rural area and just land
  • Most others urban and includes structures
  • Public/Public versus Public/Private
  • Lower ROI acceptable
  • Shared qualitative goals
  • Can transition to public/private
  • University-related
  • Used university research park experience
  • 230 parks world-wide
  • Pioneer effort a lot of plowing
  • Follow-on efforts easier and faster

Keys to Success
  • Partnering a way of life
  • Mutual respect and trust
  • Shared vision
  • Mutually assured prosperity
  • Flexibility
  • Obstinacy and commitment
  • Other Peoples Money (OPM)

LEONARD WOOD INSTITUTE An Organizational and
Operational Concept
  • Established in 2004 by Missouri Enterprise as a
    Missouri-based, not-for-profit, tax exempt
  • Reorganized in 2006 with new bylaws, board of
    directors and refocused mission
  • Board membership includes local businesses and
    economic development leaders, University of
    Missouri- Rolla, Lincoln University, and Battelle
    Memorial Institute.
  • Based in the University of Missouri Technology
    Park at Fort Leonard Wood      

  • Create and manage a collaboration of
    private business, university, and economic
    development organizations to
  • Support DoD and Army Transformation
  • Enhance business industry capability to respond
    to DoD requirements
  • Contribute to DoD mission success at FLW and
    around the world
  • Increase value of FLW to DoD and the nation
  • Promote economic and business development in the
    region and state

An organization that develops the capabilities of
Missouri-based businesses and universities to
provide technology related products and services
in support of current and future Army and DoD
programs. The result of this effort is a
stronger technology base in Missouri for meeting
DoD technology requirements and a more vibrant
economy in the region and state.                  
Secure funding for, competitively award, and
manage projects intended to assess, transition,
prototype, and otherwise assist the development
of appropriate technologies and services for U.S.
Army or DoD capability requirements.
Primary Goals
  • Provide project-based funding to Missouri
    companies or organizations that can solve the
    Armys technical challenges through innovative
    RD projects
  • Provide technical assistance and Phase 0
    funding to early stage RD companies that will
    enable SBIR/STTR proposals to be submitted to the
    Army for follow-on funding
  • Promote, arrange and manage collaborative RD
    projects involving universities and companies
    that produce military-critical technologies and
  • Institute a business model that allows LWI to
    generate income from fees and other sources that
    will ensure long-term sustainability
  • Track and identify the economic impact of LWI
    investments and operations

  • Provide funding and technical assistance to
    qualifying companies or organizations that can
    satisfy military RD needs
  • Administer federal and other funding in a
    transparent, responsible fashion that achieves
    results for the military and the region
  • Establish collaborations with additional
    universities, companies and other organizations
    to investigate, identify and address additional
    technologies needs of DoD
  • Partner with government organizations that have
    program management responsibility for military
    and homeland security requirements
  • Actively pursue additional funding through
    Congressional appropriations, federal
    labs/agencies, and other public and private
