The purpose of this research is to measure the level of inter-organizational coordination and to identify factors affecting it in the public organizations of Karaj City. Using Morgan table, together with systematic random sampling method, a sample of 59 organizations was selected. Data related to the variables of the research were collected by questionnaires. Before the questionnaires were distributed, they were validated based on the literature review and an expert’s comments. Cronbach Alpha coefficient was applied to confirm the reliability of the questionnaires, which indicated 0.7. One sample t-test was used to measure inter-organizational coordination for the following five dimensions: collaborative decision-making, formality, relationships and communication, operational integrity, and monitoring. Results show that inter-organizational coordination is at a relatively desirable level. Besides, exploratory factor analysis shows the grouping of the factors affecting inter-organizational coordination as follows: 1. willingness to cooperate, 2. adjusting inter-organizational relationships, 3. respecting  mutual benefits, 4. common orientation and inter-dependence, 5. legal agreement. 
Linear regression analysis shows that from among the stated factors, the first and second have the highest effect on inter-organizational coordination in the Iranian context.
