Government and academia can collaborate on bringing innovation and filling design-reality gaps in e-government projects. However, differences in project management methods employed by the organizations is often a challenge for collaborative works. Bearing that in mind, we investigated a 30-month government-academia partnership to find appropriate ways to get around this obstacle. From the analysis of \textit{post-mortem} data as well as the results of questionnaires and interviews with project participants, we present a set of best practices based on open source and agile software development approaches that favors team management in government-academia collaborations in e-government development projects.
