  • Cooperation among public sector organizations is increasingly important in the management of resources in welfare systems. A Joint Venture (JV) is an organization form that enables public sector organizations to cooperate with others in order to achieve economies of scale in investments in physical resources and knowledge. However, our understanding of how this organization form is controlled is limited. This paper maps the control packages Swedish municipal JVs use in their horizontal and vertical relationships and investigates the factors that affect their control packages designs. The paper also contributes to the debate on the relationship between trust and control in inter-organizational relationships. The three case studies of this research reveal that vertical control packages are affected by trust, parents’ dissimilarities, the relatedness between the JV activity and other owner activities, and horizontal controls. Horizontal control packages are affected by the presence or absence of a dominant owner and by contacts between parents. Furthermore, the paper presents evidence of an “inverted crowding out” effect where maintaining trust is an argument for not developing formal controls. This effect may lead to instability in times of crisis and an inefficient use of resources. Keywords: Trust and control, horizontal control package, vertical control package, joint venture, public organizations, municipality
