Nonprofit organisations and public policy : exploring the research role of the Brotherhood of St Laurence /

by Keen, Susan | Queensland University of Technology. Program on Nonprofit orporations.

Publisher: Brisbane Program on Nonprofit Corporations, Queensland University of Technology 1996Description: 21 p.Other title: Queensland University of Technology. Program on Nonprofit.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 1996 Bibliography : p. 19-21Summary: This paper begins to explore the role of the Brotherhood of St Laurence as a nonprofit welfare organisation and its influence on public policy in Australia. The Brotherhood's impact on Australian social policy has been evident through a range of actions: the production of research on relevant social issues; the preparation of submissions and position papers and involvement in consultations with governments on social policy; and the personal influence of many of the charismatic (mostly) men who have led the organisation throughout its history. This paper highlights the Brotherhood’s research aspect and speculates upon the impact of its considerable research contribution. The Brotherhood has been involved in service delivery through a range of often innovative programs throughout its history, but the organisation's involvement in research and advocacy has rendered it unique in comparison to any other nonprofit welfare organisation in Australia. This paper finds that different kinds of research can be utilised in different ways; by studying the output of the Brotherhood it will explore and highlight how knowledge utilisation takes place.

Public funding and the values of third sector organisations : output legitimacy versus normative legitimacy. /

by Nevile, Ann.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University 2009Description: 23 p.Notes: URL: 'http://www.crawford.anu.edu.au/degrees/pogo/discussion_papers/PDP08-03.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:30:37 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "As the involvement of third sector organisations in the delivery of publicly funded services has increased, so too have debates over the effect of such collaboration on the distinctive value base of third sector organisations on which normative claims of legitimacy rest. This qualitative study based on in-depth interviews with staff from a diverse range of third sector organisations in the north of England and London, asks whether the normative legitimacy of third sector organisations is being compromised by the requirements placed on third sector organisations by external funding agencies. The study finds that third sector agencies are able to protect their normative legitimacy through a range of strategies, the most important of which is a mixed resource base; a strategy that also enables third sector organisations to engage in evolutionary innovation." -- AuthorAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Social procurement and its implications for social enterprise : a literature review /

by Barraket, Jo | Queensland University of Technology. Australian Centre for hilanthropy and Nonprofit Studies | Weissman, Janelle.

Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. Queensland University of Technology 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2009 Bibliography : p. 21-27Summary: This paper reviews the available academic and policy literature to identify the possibilities and limitations of social procurement, and the factors that enable its implementation. In doing so, it aims to contribute to an evidence-based approach to social enterprise development in Australia, and to provide practical information of use to both policy makers and social enterprises considering social procurement arrangements. Based on the available evidence, the dominant focus of this review is on social procurement by governments. Social procurement can be understood as the use of purchasing power to create social value. In the case of public sector purchasing, social procurement involves the utilisation of procurement strategies to support social policy objectives. In recent years, governments in some parts of the world have supported the development of procurement policies that incorporate social factors into their competitive review process. There has been particular interest in social procurement as a mechanism for stimulating markets for social enterprise, as part of a wider policy framework that has involved considerable devolution of public service delivery to social enterprise and the voluntary sector In Australia, there is increasing attention being paid to the potential of government procurement to deliver social outcomes within the context of achieving value for money.Availability: (1)
