Payment by results
Payment by results (PBR) is a new form of financing that makes payments contingent on the independent verification of results.
PBR is a cross government reform priority and several other government departments are piloting this approach. PBR is strongly referenced in the UK Government Cabinet Office’s Open Public Services White Paper, which sets out the Government agenda for public sector reform. PBR approaches are also starting to gain momentum internationally, with DFID amongst leaders.
