Transfer Pricing in Government Organizations

  • Nico P. Mol


Government organizations can usually be characterized as “multidivisional” entities, showing high levels of interdependence between their subunits. Often this interdependence is a consequence of a policy of vertical integration, which is deemed to be necessary in regard to the tasks to be performed. The integration of logistic support with the operational units of the armed forces may be taken as an obvious example.
