We are in the process of submitting another one from this same data, although it looks at influence networks rather than collaboration.
We just completed a study for the FAA where we developed a pilot tactic knowledge and trust network if you are interested.

I am working on my dissertation examining the overlaps of federal
advisory committees with the largest corporations and nonprofits.
There are some studies that look at membership of federal advisory
committees, but none that I know of that really use social network
analysis. I could send along the citations if you are interested

We did two sna projects for state agencies that function with federal oversight -- of two western states. Both projects were supported at least in part by federal funding. We were looking for centrality scores for expertise and learned of that and much more. We have not published the results per se, but we did release a white paper. We did some unique things with the informed consent requirements which helped with our IRB. Some of the findings can be found in my book Methods-Based Management, which is referenced below at Amazon. As a result of these studies, I developed the "process vs prerogative" concepts within methods-based management. If you are interested, I could send the white paper -- which coincidentally was a study of the corresponding agency in Idaho -- and some of the informed consent documents, which may help you set up your study.
Here is a paper we presented at the Academy of Management that we are working on getting ready for submission. It is particular to incident management but may be useful.
Not to brag about the work we've done with environmental policy
networks, but we've done plenty of it. It is not just federal agencies,
but it is all kinds of different government agencies and I think many of
the findings translate just fine into federal agency working groups. So
I would look at work by the following people (to start):
