Public Management Review, 2013, vol. 15, issue 6, 878-898

Abstract: This article focuses on the financial aspects of collaborative working between public authorities and other private and voluntary sector organizations. Drawing on research on five English case studies involving local authorities, it considers the extent to which decisions to collaborate and modes of working together are shaped and mediated by financial considerations. In particular, the research highlights differences in 'budgetary form' (pooled or aligned), individual partner 'motivation' (selfless/altruistic or self-interested) and 'level of engagement' (active commitment or passive involvement) as key variables that help to understand how and why some financial collaborations are more successful than others.
