Outcomes-Based Contracting for Reentry and Housing Supports
April 6, 2022
Building on the Pay for Success model, panelists discuss how and why outcomes-based contracts can be used to support people reentering the community and how justice partners can use performance-driven contracting to help define outcomes and support getting desired results. Opportunities through using outcomes-based contracts include promoting data collection and tracking recidivism outcomes, including jail bookings, length of stay, charging information, housing status, and more.
The discussion also addresses how to educate government agencies to ensure that staff and service providers have adequate training for collecting data, validating outcomes, and developing research partnerships.
