This paper seeks to extend our knowledge of intermediate transacting frameworks by examining the history of the Steel Manufacturers' Nickel Syndicate. The study shows how constituents arranged and employed inter-organizational communication lines to create a durable cooperative purchasing syndicate that had a special relationship with a New Caledonian supplier. By measuring the financial advantages that members secured by participation relative to market prices, the article explores one way of refining our approach to comparative institutional analysis.
