Evaluation of the Commissioning Better Outcomes (CBO) Programme

Client: 

Big Lottery Fund

Ecorys, in partnership with ATQ, have been commissioned by The Big Lottery Fund to evaluate the Commissioning Better Outcomes (CBO) fund. CBO aims to support the development of Social Impact Bonds (SIBs), and other financial mechanisms, amongst public bodies. This nine year project is focusing on evaluating the development and impact of SIBs both funded by the programme and beyond. The method includes consultations and surveys with commissioners, stakeholders and investors, a range of 'deep dives' and case studies with areas introducing SIBs, and collating MI data to understand the impact.
