This guide has been designed specifically for policymakers, public sector officials, and other practitioners interested in the adoption of outcomes-based approaches in their own countries, regions or municipalities. It offers a wealth of practical advice as well as examples from emergent practice across Europe.

The report was produced by the GO Lab with financial support from the European Investment Advisory Hub. It focuses on practical issues related to the interplay of public contracting rules and social outcomes contracts. It does not aim to be an exhaustive review of the practice in Europe, but rather offers more information about the awarding of social outcomes contracts in Europe, as well as challenges faced and solutions found.
