PITTSBURGH) Jan. 25, 2013 City officials today announced that the Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority’s (ICA) Nonprofit Sector Support Task Force is fully constituted with 36 members , including residents and representatives from the business, nonprofit, foundation, academic, labor, civic and governmental community. Don Smith, president of the Regional Industrial Development Corporation of Southwestern Pennsylvania, will serve as the Task Force chair.
On October 16, 2012 the Board of Directors of the ICA approved the City of Pittsburgh’s 2013 budget on the condition that a high level task force be established to “review, study, benchmark, develop and submit a written proposal to the City and the ICA regarding the level, length, and form of support from the nonprofit sector to the City of Pittsburgh.” The Task Force is being convened to meet that requirement. Meetings will be public and a report is expected to be submitted by June 30, 2013 to the ICA and City. Meeting dates and locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
The ICA was created by the Pennsylvania General Assembly though the Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority Act for Cities of the Second Class or Act 11 of 2004. The ICA is an oversight board consisting of five members, one each appointed by the Governor, and the Republican and Democratic leadership of the Pennsylvania General Assembly Senate and House of Representatives. Among other duties, the ICA is charged with helping the City of Pittsburgh generate annual positive financial results, and the coordination of this Task Force is an outpost of that responsibility.
