CGR was commissioned by the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families and Communities to prepare a resource paper on master contracting because of the unique expertise of CGR staff in this area. Master contracting is an administrative tool to combine government contracts within a single provider to both simplify administration and promote integrated, outcome-focused service delivery. The paper describes the mechanics of master contracting as well as the benefits and challenges of this approach. Two New York State examples are used as case studies.
