Here is how city agencies and nonprofits can communicate during the procurement process

The Guide to Collaborative Communication with Human Services Providers incorporated suggestions from the Nonprofit Resiliency Committee.
April 23, 2018

New York City wants feedback from its nonprofit contractors, but it doesn't want conflicts of interest. There are rules designed to prevent conflicts, but there are also ways that city and sector agencies can collaborate.

The Guide to Collaborative Communication with Human Services Providers released earlier this year outlines suggestions from the Nonprofit Resiliency Committee about how government and nonprofits can work together during the contracting process. The options vary from one stage of the procurements process to another. 

Nothing compares to the details in the guide, but in the meantime we have this quick video cheatsheet for the broad strokes.
