French term or phrase: contrat de résultat
A table of services under the heading "Maintenance multitechnique" in a service provision contract.

One line reads:

"Contrat de résultat avec la mise en place d'une équipe composée de : 1 responsable de site et 2 techniciens de maintenance. Astreinte 24/24 sous 2 heures. Mise en place d'une GMAO inclus"

Then, farther down:

"Dératisation désinsectisation - (prices) - Contrat de résultat"

"Entretien des terrasses - (prices) - Contrat de résultat"

Does this perhaps mean that a separate contract will be drawn up for certain services? Context doesn't seem to support that scenario. Or contract based on objectives? Thanks in advance for any ideas!

objective-based contract
Explanation:
Hello,

This is my understanding.

résultat = objective-based (goal is meeting the objective)

I've seen this used in contracts signed by professional athletes.

I hope this helps.
