View Resource: NACSA’s 12 Essential Practices for Every Authorizer
Culled from NACSA’s Principles and Standards guide, the 12 Essential Practices reflect the five domains of effective authorizing: agency commitment and capacity; application process and decision making; performance contracting; ongoing oversight and evaluation; and revocation and renewal decision making. The 12 practices are minimum expectations considered essential by the most successful authorizers nationally. Any authorizer can use these Essential Practices as a tool for self-evaluation and to spur improvements in their own work.
