A Common Goal: Review of the South Australian Not for Profit Funding Policy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded. Thanks for your contributions.

We want your help to support and strengthen the relationship between the not-for-profit sector and the South Australian Government.

What's being decided?

We are working to renew the South Australian Funding Policy for the Not for Profit Sector.

The Funding Policy is based on best practice principles for government and not-for-profit relationships and aims to support and strengthen these partnerships.

We have partnered with leaders of the not-for-profit sector to review the policy and develop a plan to identify barriers and explore opportunities for improvement.

Background

Our not-for-profit partners deliver vital services that government cannot deliver alone, and make a significant contribution to South Australia’s economy.

The purpose of this project is to engage in deep consultation with key stakeholders to review barriers and issues, and to strengthen the relationship between government and the not-for-profit sector.

Get involved

We are seeking input from South Australian not-for-profit organisations who have partnered with or want to partner with government. If you are a not-for-profit supplying to government or interested in supplying to government and would like to share the barriers, challenges, and successes you or your organisation have had, we’d love to hear from you. This includes not-for-profit community groups who receive grants from the South Australian government.

We are also interested in hearing from South Australian government staff who buy goods and services from not-for-profits or that run government grant programs.

What are the next steps?

We will use your input to build recommendations for a renewed approach for how government works together with not-for-profit organisations to improve our relationship.

    Impact of procurement on service continuity

    Adequate and timely indexation is also critical for NGOs. Service delivery viability is particularly sensitive to wage cost increases. Often, indexation is passed on... Continue reading

    Application for School registration

    by Capt.Bouc, 3 months ago

    As a very experienced, ancient teacher, together with a couple of others similar, have attempted to form a new independent school designed to correct the failures of the current system for an ever increasing number of 25-24 year olds who are not finding success. The existing school system is failing. Students are school refusing, young new teachers are walking away. We believe we have a solution that should be tested to help at least a few of these "different and non-complient" teens. We believe they are the drivers of the future and need a different approach to carry them over... Continue reading
