COVID-19 and Outcomes Contracts

In response to the global coronavirus outbreak, the GO Lab has launched a new peer learning group called Emergency Responses  and Government Outcomes (ERGO). This group will convene to take stock of the implications that emergency situations such as the current coronavirus pandemic have on those implementing outcomes-based approaches. 

The first session  of the ERGO peer learning group will explore the implications of the current situation for those running outcomes contracts, focusing in particular on where and on what dimensions outcomes contracts are able to flex and adapt to the realities of the pandemic. 

This online session will bring together legal experts and other practitioners to talk through the strengths and limitations of outcomes contracts in today’s emergency context. The session is designed to be informational for those delivering outcomes contracts who are looking to understand what changes are likely permissible.
