Citywide Nonprofit Monitoring and Capacity Building Program

Program Overview | Fiscal and Compliance Monitoring | Resources for Nonprofits

Nonprofit Monitoring Logo
Each year, the City and County of San Francisco contracts with hundreds of nonprofit organizations to provide critical services throughout the City. These contracts represent about $500 million annually. The Citywide Nonprofit Monitoring and Capacity Building Program saves City taxpayers and nonprofits time and money by consolidating fiscal and compliance monitoring when a nonprofit receives funding from more than one City department. This approach is designed to decrease the administrative burden and eliminate duplication of effort for both nonprofit contractors and City departments. The Program has established a Corrective Action Policy, which may be implemented when nonprofits do not meet the fiscal and compliance standards required by the City. The program also provides training and technical assistance to both nonprofits and City departments to build the capacity of the nonprofit network as a whole.
