AbstractThis article introduces an informatics approach to managing the performance of interorganizational governance networks that are designed to create, implement and evaluate public policies and the range of activities undertaken by practicing public administrators. We label this type of information flow process management “governance informatics” and lay out a range of theoretical constructs that may be used to collect, categorize, and analyze performance in interorganizational governance networks. We discuss how governance informatics may be able to assess and re-design the accountability and transparency regimes of information flows in interorganizational governance networks. The integration of a governance informatics-driven performance management system into an existing regional transportation planning network is presented as an application of the framework.
