This readiness review document, produced as part of the Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) Business Acumen Learning Collaborative, offers a structure to support networks of community-based organizations (CBOs) to begin exploring the requirements of forming and operationalizing a formal network business structure. The readiness review provides a framework for assessing network capacity and infrastructure requirements for establishing a more formal network structure (e.g., a management service organization other model) to support regional contracting efforts for participating CBOs.
The review includes a two-level analysis:
1. Network capacity assessment
2. Individual network CBO operational capacity assessment
