Beth Bowsky 

Policy Specialist - Government–Nonprofit Contracting

Beth Bowsky is the Policy Specialist for Government-Nonprofit Contracting, a role in which she combines her unique blend of nonprofit and government experience to manage the National Council of Nonprofits’ multi-year and multi-faceted program to promote fairer and simpler contracting and grant processes and procedures across the country, which includes the OMB Uniform Guidance. She is responsible for supporting advocacy efforts, providing technical assistance for needed policy changes in government-nonprofit contracting and grant processes, and creating informational and resource materials on contracting reform.

With an educational background in social work and public administration as well as experience as a grantor and grantee, Beth brings to the job a passion for convening diverse groups of people from the public and private sectors to identify solutions and expand the capacity of charitable nonprofits to deliver better services and value. Her career in the nonprofit arena, has afforded her with a comprehensive view of the opportunities and challenges that accompany change. As the CEO of a multi-service nonprofit, Beth learned from the ground up the importance of collaboration and the power of public support, including serving as Chair of Public Policy for the Ohio Association of Child Caring Agencies. Beth’s work as president of her own consulting firm included serving as the Interim Executive Direct of the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund to reorganize and streamline collaborative state and federal funding efforts in each of the state’s 88 counties. As a National Leadership Consultant for Arlington, Va.-based National Alliance On Mental Illness (NAMI), Beth assisted state organizations across the country build and implement strategic plans for growth, governance, and advocacy, while also serving as a speaker and trainer at state and national conventions. Through shared learning and advocacy, Beth believes that tremendous improvements can be made in government-nonprofit contracting that will benefit all parties.

Whether your nonprofit receives federal money through grants and contracts directly with the federal government, or if it is included in your state and local grants and contracts (often unbeknownst to nonprofits), the OMB Uniform Guidance that went into effect on December 26, 2014 applies to you. Learn about the key changes that will impact your organization, including a new single audit threshold, stronger internal controls, purchasing processes, risk assessments, and monitoring requirements.


This session will provide additional focus on the most notable new requirement-- that governments and other pass-through entities now must pay at least a minimum for your indirect costs. Find out how to determine your indirect costs, which differ from your administrative costs, so that you can negotiate a fair and reasonable reimbursement rate for your organization.


Participants will cover:

  • Background on the “Starvation Cycle” first published by Stanford Social Innovations
  • FAQs from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget Uniform Guidance on Indirect Costs
  • Auditors perspective on Indirect Costs
  • Understanding your Indirect Costs
  • Integrating your true Indirect Costs into your Grant Applications
