Russian Nonprofits as Contracted Providers of Municipal Social Services

Initial Experience

Abstract

This paper reports the results of an assessment of pioneering pilot competitions for the delivery of social services in three municipalities in 2000-2001: Perm, Velikii Novgorod, and Tomsk. The objective of the pilots was to determine if the local governments could hire NPOs to be service providers following a rigorous and fair competitive process and whether the selected NPOs would do an adequate job in delivering services.
