Matrix is providing professional consultation to the Economic Development Council (EDC) of Okaloosa County after establishing a Tri-County Community Partnership Initiative (TCPI) supporting Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field.  We continue to facilitate the initiative and are researching and identifying focus areas for potential new partnership authorities and opportunities. In several cases, we have moved to the early implementation stages of unique public-public / public-private partnership agreements. We are proud to have facilitated multiple successful agreements including a memorandum of understanding between the base and community to collaborate, create and preserve jobs for military members and dependents, as well as a unique solution to utilize concrete debris from the installation for off-shore reef habitats benefitting the environment and tourism industry while saving the installation thousands in disposal costs. The continued objective of TCPI is to leverage military installation and local community capabilities in order to achieve reduced operating and service costs in support of the military mission. Matrix Team has worked for EDC since May 2014 – Present.
