The study examined the effect of public policy and administration on Non-Governmental Organizations’ effectiveness in Nigeria. The specific objectives were to investigate the extent to which tax policies, registration policies and inflation rate can affect the effectiveness of non-governmental organizations in Nigeria. Survey research design was adopted for this study. A sample size of two hundred and twelve (212) respondents from the selected population of four hundred and fifty (450) staff were used. Descriptive statistical tool was used to analyze the demographic report of the respondents while inferential statistical tools of Pearson product moment correlation coefficients (PPMC) and Regression analysis was used to analyze the formulated hypotheses. Findings revealed that there is a significant effect of tax policies on NGOs’ effectiveness (R2=0.109, P=0.000), it also show a positive relationship between inflation rate and non-governmental organizations’ effectiveness (r=0.472, P<0.05), and a significant effect of registration policies  (R2=0.344, P=0.000) on NGOs’ effectiveness in Nigeria.

The study concludes that proper management of public policy (tax policies, inflation rate and registration policies) by the government play a significant role towards the effectiveness and sustainability of NGOs in Nigeria. Therefore, the study recommends that the Nigerian government should encourage the administration and implementation of good and enabling legal frameworks and also revisit all existing applicable regulations and policies in order to minimize areas of overlap so as to foster a more enabling operating environment for the NGOs.
