This paper explores the extent to which environmental change influences the ability of the individual to transfer information internal and external to the organizational setting. Data from professionals within 19 US governmental agencies were examined to investigate the impacts of job satisfaction, environmental turbulence, interorganizational conflict and resource acquisition as factors independently influencing boundary-spanning. Results indicate that perceptions of external politics and programme growth are positively associated with boundary-spanning activities while perceptions of work climate and interorganizational conflict have a negligible influence.
