DFID defines Payment by Results as “any programme where payments are made after the achievement of pre-agreed results”.

‘Designing and Delivering PbR Programmes’ is our guidance for people considering, designing or implementing a PbR project. It is primarily aimed at DFID staff.

The spreadsheet gives a summary overview of a selection of our more innovative Payment by Results projects: those where payments are made on the delivery of pre-agreed outcomes. Outcomes are the medium- and long-term effects of programmes, the things that actually make a positive difference to peoples’ lives, for example better health, better education or higher incomes.

There are links to the Development Tracker, which can be followed for further information and documentation on the particular programmes listed (for example business cases, log frames and annual reviews).
