The Social Impact Bond (SIB) is a procurement model for publicly-funded social service delivery that bundles together private sector design, delivery and project finance into a single performance-based payment contract.  While proponents of the SIB model point to new resources and efficiency enhancements, this paper presents an alternative explanation for the emergence and proliferation of the SIB model:  that SIBs may be proceeding due to their alignment with the logic and interests of finance and its beneficiaries.
