Washington, D.C. â€“ In response to a national crisis that impacts every American, two national organizations today issued the results of groundbreaking research into the data and underlying causes for the long-coming government contracting crisis that is undermining the ability of nonprofit organizations to maintain the social safety net on behalf of governments and the public. The reports address longstanding problems in government contracting that have been exacerbated by the current recession.
Earlier today the Urban Institute released a study regarding the first-ever national survey documenting the serious and widespread problems experienced by nonprofit human service providers under contract with governments at the local, state and federal levels. The report, Human Service Nonprofits and Government Collaboration: Findings from the 2010 National Survey of Nonprofit Government Contracting and Grants, provides essential national and state data on contracting practices, and ranks states from worst to best on several areas of concern to individuals in need of services, to taxpayers, and to entire communities.
