Los Angeles OKs Paying Full Cost Of Contracted Services

Printer-friendly version

In a first-in-the-nation move, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors yesterday approved a motion to develop new guidelines regarding reimbursement of administrative costs to nonprofits that are contracted to deliver services on behalf of government.

“Los Angeles County has now raised the bar for collaboration between governments and nonprofits by stating its firm stance that its nonprofit partners must be paid the full cost to deliver services that the county contracts with them to provide,” said Tim Delaney, president and CEO of the National Council of Nonprofits.

The motion by Supervisor Hilda Solis, and co-authored by Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, aims to strengthen nonprofit service in the county by supporting the implementation of new federal rules governing how government agencies reimburse nonprofits for the full cost of their work. “By ensuring we are covering the full and reasonable cost for their services, we can in turn help our nonprofit partners better serve their constituents and fulfill their important and irreplaceable missions,” Solis said in a statement.
