ACOSS Contracting Survey 2012

The adequacy of funding and financial viability of community services is central to their effectiveness. Yet many community services are uncertain about their funding situation, even at the point when they are supposed to be delivering funded services.

ACOSS has been calling for appropriate policies underpinning the government contracting of community organisations, to improve their effectiveness and viability. As part of this work, we want to hear from community services in Australia about the status of their contracts for services now that the new financial year has begun.

The survey is open for one week from Wednesday 4 July to Wednesday 11 July.
