Nonprofits not required to follow sunshine laws

Matthew Hirsch of the San Francisco Bay Guardian investigated nonprofit city contracts and found that San Francisco is spending billions on nonprofit contracts without adequate oversight. "Since 2002 ... the city has distributed more than $1.5 billion to nonprofit organizations ..." The nonprofits receiving the contracts, unlike city agencies, do not have to comply with sunshine laws. "They're run by nonelected boards that often meet behind closed doors, effectively making public policy decisions without direct public input or oversight."
