The data used are primary and secondary data. Data collection techniques using interviews and documentation. Data analysis using interactive model. The results of the study explain that there is a division of roles between the parties involved in the collaboration. Interactions between public officials appear to be similar in aspects of behavior, beliefs, perceptions and preferences. Continuous communication that is established on a regular basis. Executive and legislative officials also play a role in the implementation of cooperation and there is clarity on the role of the appointed administrator. Meanwhile, in the policy focus, the capacity of the budget to implement cooperation comes from each party and the central government's policies are followed up by local governments. The driving factors for cooperation are the similarity of ideas, the economic benefits and the support of regional leaders. The inhibiting factor is limited funds.
