Non-profits are important in both New York’s statewide and regional economies. In every region of New York, at least one of every eight jobs is at a non-profit organization. We need to support and strengthen this sector, on which many New Yorkers depend.

In his report, Not-For-Profit Prompt Contracting, State Comptroller DiNapoli found 50% of contracts in 2019 between non-profit organizations and the state were not processed until after the contract start date.

DiNapoli expressed his concern with this figure, saying “In the coming months, New York state will need to rely on our not-for-profit partners more than ever to continue fighting the impacts of the coronavirus and help provide essential services to New Yorkers. The failure of state agencies to process contracts on time is unacceptable and harms service providers in fields like healthcare, care for the disabled, education and homeless services, which in turn erodes service delivery to vulnerable populations.”
