ABSTRACT Inter-organizational controls are mechanisms used to ensure and monitor that networked enterprises do not commit a fraud and behave as agreed. Many of such controls have, apart from thei r control purpose, an inherent economic value component. This feature requires controls to pop-up into business value models, stating how actors crea te, trade and consume objects of economic value. In this paper, we provid e guidelines that can be used to decide whether organizational controls should be part of a value model or not. We demonstrate these guidelines by a case stud y on the Letter of Credit procedure.
