The University of Manchester has been awarded a research contract for the independent evaluation of the Department of Health’s drug and alcohol recovery payment by results pilots programme
The evaluation contract follows a rigorous open competitive tendering exercise, advice from an independent expert commissioning panel, and a process of post-tender negotiations with the preferred bidder.
The overall aim of the evaluation is to investigate whether, how, and to what extent, a payment by results approach can stimulate the market to provide different schemes, co-ordinated across a range of services, that successfully initiate and sustain the recovery of individuals from drug and alcohol dependence, and their successful re-integration into their communities.
