This book has examined some technical, economic and political questions about outcomes-based commissioning as well as key theoretical debates, arguing that outcomes-based commissioning in its various guises may be theorised as a logical extension of New Public Management (NPM) or marketisation. It has also shown that outcomes-based commissioning might be theorised as policy makers' response to complexity and risk management, and/or as a means of facilitating philanthropists and other private sector actors in social innovation. This chapter draws conclusions from the evidence that has been reviewed, discusses the theoretical issues that have been identified, and considers future directions for Payment by Results (PbR) and Social Impact Bonds (SIBs).

Keywords:   outcome-based commissioning, New Public Management, NPM, marketisation, risk management, social innovation, Payment by Results, PbR, Social Impact Bonds, SIBs
