The Social Impact Bond (SIB) is a tool with the potential to change the working relationship among the public and private sectors and Civil Society Organizations. Focused on measured impact of interventions, this model is active in the UK, US and Mozambique. SITAWI is one of the pioneer organizations to work with SIBs in Brazil.
SIBs offer the possibility of financial returns when specific social outcomes are met. Currently, public procurement is prescriptive which inhibits the pursuit of efficiency or innovation and ignores social outcomes. The innovative component of SIB is that the risk is transferred from the operator to the investor.
SITAWI can support all phases of a SIB implementation: ideation, feasibility analysis, operational and financial modeling and assistance in contracting matters – including coordination with Governments, Social Service Providers (social organizations), Impact Evaluators and Investors. Our unique combination of finance and management consulting skills in cross-sectorial and multidisciplinary projects ensures alignment of interests among all parties involved in solving social challenges.
Our background and expertise strategically positions SITAWI to lead the implementation of SIBs in Brazil, promoting partnerships and coordinate projects including government teams, NGOs, investors and evaluators.
The portal is an initiative led by SITAWI in partnership with Social Finance UK, and Insper as the academic partner. SIBHub’s goal is to become a reference center about SIBs in Brazil, promoting cross-sector information exchange and spreading knowledge and successful experiences that can guide more effective policies, programs and practices to address Brazil’s complex social challenges.
