This research  explained how  different oversight mechanisms in outsourced public service delivery affect the cost of government by drawing on transaction costs economics and inter-organizational control literatures.

MPSA conference sessions are organized by topic in more than 80 sections based on different subfields or areas of study. Many of these are interdisciplinary and provide participants with a new perspective on the research. The MPSA conference was held under one roof at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, and included multiple receptions, formal networking events, organized mentoring opportunities, and access to our extensive exhibit hall. Additionally, MPSA offered a variety of conference-related scholarships for working parents and graduate students, as well as a fee waiver scholarship for those from the developing world and outside of the discipline.
