Policy and Guidance for Program-for-Results Financing
The new Program-for-Results (PforR) financing instrument was approved by the World Bank’s Board in January 2012. Preparation and implementation of PforR operations is guided by a dedicated Operational Policy (OP 9.00), Bank Procedure (BP 9.00), interim guidance notes to staff, and guidelines for preventing fraud and corruption.

Bank-financed Program-for-Results operations are governed by OP/BP 9.00, Program-for-Results Financing. All other OPs/BPs relevant to Program-for-Results financing are listed in OP 9.00, Program-for-Results Financing.
