Toward Common Sense Contracting: What Taxpayers Deserve is designed to help overcome the serious problems charitable nonprofits encounter when entering written agreements with governments to deliver services to the public.
Through extensive research and input from front-line nonprofit contractors and grantees, it provides real-world context and consequences to the problems documented through nationwide statistical data published by the Urban Institute’s Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy in its new National Study of Nonprofit-Government Contracts and Grants 2013: State Profiles and recent Nonprofit-Government Contracts and Grants: Findings from the 2013 National Survey.
This report provides tested, replicable solutions to the government-nonprofit contracting problems and calls on all interested parties to join in efforts to promote common sense contracting.
