Collaboration among governmental organizations has been regarded as essential for realizing benefits of eGovernment investments. Interorganizational collaboration on eGovernment can take several forms. As well, eGovernment initiatives can produce varying types of political, organizational, and technological benefits. However, few if any studies have delved deeper into analysis of how chosen modes of collaboration might relate to targeted eGovernment benefits. This paper studies multiple cases of how contemporary acquisitions and implementations of electronic archiving systems have been launched through varying modes of collaboration among Swedish governmental agencies and municipalities. Our analysis revealed that whereas the target system, e-archiving, is the same in all of the studied cases, the pursued benefits vary. The article contributes by initial theorizing for understanding how selected modes of collaboration on eGovernment may impact on the particular types of benefits to be realized.
