This article is based on an exploratory, interdisciplinary study of issues related to information sharing within and across three public agencies. Three subcultures within the public sector (scientist, politician, and bureaucrat) were identified as a framework to examine these issues. The author’s three categories of benefits and barriers, associated with interagency information sharing (technical, organizational, and political), were also used in developing the framework.
