According to this story in Reuters, The Urban Institute has teamed up with Social Solutions (a leading provider of human services performance management software) to launch a web portal that will provide nonprofits with information and measurement tools to enhance performance. According to the story,
The portal will feature detailed guides to help agencies identify and use proven and promising practices to serve their clients effectively, and a library of tools to assess whether their lives have improved as intended. Portal content will be developed in conjunction with well-known organizations and consultants.
The first phase of the portal is scheduled to launch in spring 2010, and the partners plan to demonstrate the portal`s proof of concept at Social Solutions upcoming ETOlution 2009 Conference in Baltimore.
