Involving several levels ranging from policy-making to service delivery, the coor- dination of regional public organizations is a complex matter. This paper explores how relational preconditions affect regional public organizations’ coordination activities and outcomes. A model is developed that links relational preconditions to coordination outcomes. Even though the coordination mechanisms and instru- ments are used, the coordination outcome might vary based on the individuals and the relationships among individuals. This study suggests that the use of coordination mechanisms and in turn coordination outcome, is affected by the individuals’ personal beliefs and personal relationships as well as trust in the vertical organization.
