THE QUASI NONGOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION.
PIFER, ALAN
ORGANIZED TO MEET URGENT NATIONAL NEEDS, PROVIDE INDEPENDENT JUDGMENT, AND OFFER FRESH SOLUTIONS TO COMPLEX PROBLEMS, THE QUASI NONGOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION IS DEFINED AS A NONPROFIT ASSOCIATION OR INSTITUTION LODGED IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR OF SOCIETY BUT FINANCED LARGELY OR ENTIRELY BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, RESPONSIBLE TO ITS OWN BOARD OF DIRECTORS, LOCATED ON NONGOVERNMENT PROPERTY, AND DETERMINING AND IMPLEMENTING ITS OWN PROGRAM. EXAMPLES OF SUCH INSTITUTIONS INCLUDE RESEARCH UNITS SPONSORED BY THE DEFENSE ESTABLISHMENT, REGIONAL EDUCATIONAL LABORATORIES, PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORTED BY CIA FUNDS, TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS SPONSORED BY THE AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT, AND COMMUNITY ACTION AGENCIES SPONSORED BY THE OFFICE OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY. BECAUSE IT SERVES PUBLIC RATHER THAN PRIVATE OR INDIVIDUAL PURPOSES, THE QUASI NONGOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATION IS DISTINCT FROM THE TRUE VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATION. WAYS NEED TO BE FOUND TO INSURE SUCH ORGANIZATIONS THE FREEDOMS OF PROGRAM, ADMINISTRATION, AND COMMUNICATION, WITH ADEQUATE FINANCIAL SECURITY AND APPROPRIATE ACCOUNTABILITY. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM THE "ANNUAL REPORT FOR 1967." (JK)
