Government Contracting with the State
Pennsylvania, like many other states, partners with community benefit organizations to provide essential services to the community. In many cases, Pennsylvania contracts with nonprofits do not cover indirect cost or incorporate cost of living adjustments. The lack of modification to the contracts can make it difficult for nonprofits to operate. PANO will be working in collaboration with the state government to address the contract issues.
Partnering for Impact: Government-Nonprofit Contracting Task Forces Produce Results for Taxpayers
Nonprofits and governments can reduce their own costs, improve services provided to constituents, and return greater value to taxpayers by creating government-nonprofit task forces to develop and implement recommendations to reform contracting practices and procedures. That is the key finding of a new report of the National Council of Nonprofits, which conducted an extensive analysis of joint task forces in nine states charged with rooting out waste while maintaining and even enhancing accountability.
The report provides a how-to guide for nonprofits, working with their State Associations, who want to streamline the government-nonprofit contracting process. It also provides practical guides for building collaborative relationships with government officials.
