Abstract
We argue that productive vertical and horizontal networks with collaborative decision making and a two sided mutually reinforcing command structure are required for effective interagency governance. An examination of fundamental characteristics of organizations from the perspectives of economic analysis (Team Theory and Transactions Costs), of public administration theory and of ICT networks analysis lead us to consider various transactions types, locations, hazards and mitigation strategies. The concept applies to highly centralized and organizationally large operations like NATO or UN missions, to more localized emergency responses.
