Michigan's Partners for Success

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Partners for Succes is Michigan's cutting-edge approach to public-private partnerships using pay-for-success contracting. The PFS model allows the State to partner with investors in order to scale up programs that successfully address persistent social problems and saves money for taxpayers.

What is Pay-for-Success Contracting?

Pay-for-Success is a promising new approach to government financing of social service programs which uses an outcome-based contracting method.  In PFS, investors provide the up-front capital to expand or replicate proven programs and governments pay only if the program successfully achieves agreed outcomes. The partnership between investors, government and service providers is founded on performance-based payment agreements and has the potential to improve results, overcome barriers to social innovation, and encourage investments in cost-saving preventive services.
