The Performance Contracting Concept in Education.
Stucker, J. P.; Hall, G. R.
This document, part one of a report on performance contracting, explores its basic issues and considerations and is addressed to educational decisionmakers. The evolution of performance contracting is traced and the concept as it is currently being applied in education is discussed. The second part will analyze the outcomes of some programs when 1970-71 results are available. The final report, a Performance Contracting Guide, will combine original concepts with conclusions drawn from program results to produce a general guide on how to plan, conduct, and evaluate performance contracting programs. The appendix provides decisionmakers with information on contracting experiences in other sectors such as the Department of Defense and the National Aeronautics and Space Agency. A related document is EA 003 603. (Author)
