does not guarantee the success of the contractual performances

Pretty standard clause, this is what it means.

neutral  AllegroTrans: I have never seen such a standard clause and in any event no contract guarantees success, it's down to compliance by the parties; "performances" as a plural is incorrect in this context

  -> Not if you know what the writer wanted to express with it. I've come across this sort of phrasing before and bare any different context I think this is what it wants to say. The "Herbeiführung" is an odd term but I'm pretty certain it means that.

This framework contract falls short as the basis for ensuring positive results

performance obligation

Der Leistungserfolg ist die Erfüllung der Leistungspflicht. Die Erfüllung der Leistungspflicht tritt ein, wenn der Schuldner die geschuldete Leistung erbracht hat (siehe Erfüllung). Die Leistungspflicht ergibt sich aus dem Schuldverhältnis.
jura-basic (Lexikon: Leistungserfolg) - Grundwissen

„Leitungspflicht“ is explained in §362 BGB and can be rendered as “performance obligation”.

§ 362 Erlöschen durch Leistung
(1) Das Schuldverhältnis erlischt, wenn die geschuldete Leistung an den Gläubiger bewirkt wird.
(2) Wird an einen Dritten zum Zwecke der Erfüllung geleistet, so finden die Vorschriften des § 185 Anwendung.

Section 362
Extinction by performance
(1) An obligation is extinguished if the performance owed is rendered to the obligee.
(2) If performance is rendered to a third party for the purpose of performing the contract, the provisions of section 185 apply.

Hi Elizabeth - you could insert "does not provide the basis", but it's really clear enough without it. "Bildet keine Grundlage" means, literally, that is cannot be used as a basis to claim performance, and "obligation" covers this nicely, I think.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I like this - where does the bildet keine Grundlage für die Herbeiführung fit in? Could one say ... does not provide the basis of a performance obligation
