Productivity Commission Issues Paper published on the Contribution of the Not for Profit Sector

The Productivity Commission published its Issues Paper on the Contribution of the Not for Profit Sector on April 7 2009. The paper aims to assist participants in preparing submissions to the commissioned study, which will:

  • assess measures of the contribution of the sector and how these can be used to improve government policy and programs;
  • identify impediments to the efficient operation of not for profit organisations;
  • examine changes in the relationships between government, business and community organisations and examine the impact of the taxation system on the ability of not for profits to raise funds.

The government has identified successful collaboration with the not for profit sector as necessary to achieve it’s social inclusion agenda, which aims to reduce economic and social disadvantage by removing barriers to participation in employment and other aspects of community life.

Initial submissions are due by Friday 29 May 2009.
