While networks are increasingly seen as the right thing for public administrators to do (O'Leary & Gerard, 2013), there is little research on the financial accountability of public networks and collaborations (Thurmaier & Mitchell, 2013).  Even though surveys of public managers reveal that some of the top reasons for collaborating and network service delivery are financial (O'Leary & Gerard, 2013), practical knowledge of how networks are financially managed is quite limited.  As a field of study, accounting is much more directed toward these issues.  While the book Accounting in Networks (Hakansson, Kraus, & Lind, 2010a) reflect that its subject is a new area of study even for the broader field of accounting, the publication of this book marks a foundational work for those that are interested in the subject of accounting and financial management of public networks as well.
