Government Doesn’t Pay

Government Doesn’t Pay

Printer-friendly version

“Government-nonprofit contracting problems first documented in the Urban Institute’s 2010 landmark study were not an anomaly of the Great Recession,” according to the National Council of Nonprofits, which recently released its own data proposing solutions to address contracting problems. The 56-page report, Toward Common Sense Contracting: What Taxpayers Deserve, was a companion of sorts to The Urban Institute’s release of state profiles of its Nonprofit-Government Contracts and Grants: Findings from the 2013 National Survey.

The National Council suggested more than a dozen “common sense solutions,” including prompt payment and contracting laws; reducing redundancy in the application process through an electronic repository or “document vault;” standardized monitoring and reporting and language, and government-nonprofit task forces.
