Purchase of Service Contracting in Human Services
Purchase of service contracting (POSC) has changed the way that human services are structured and delivered in the United States. Most private companies now have contracts with the government and many public social service professionals have responsibility for contracts. However, few human service professionals have had any formal education or training in the philosophy, concepts, issues, and technology involved. This book presents a basic conceptual framework and step-by-step guide for POSC system design and practice.
