PBLQ, the Dutch Institute for Public Administration, supports public administrations worldwide to excel in public value creation. PBLQ strengthens the core business of the public sector through consultancy, education, research and innovation.


The public sector is in transition. It needs innovation to ensure smarter organisations and more efficient processes to meet today's societal challenges. We deliver projects, training and independent advice on organisational and process development to enhance the effectiveness of public administrations. We operate on the strategic, tactical and operational level.

PBLQ serves a wide range of organisations in the Dutch and occasionally international public sector. Internationally, PBLQ has extensive experience with projects for multilateral donor organisations such as the European Commission, the World Bank, the United Nations Development Program, the Inter-American Development Bank and the Asian Development Bank. We are also contracted directly by national governments, as well as by bilateral funding agencies such as the KfW Development Bank Germany.


Many PBLQ employees are former senior civil servants from the national, provincial or municipal level. We invest by sharing our experiences and knowledge through seminars, lectures and publications. PBLQ works closely with the academic world and hosts an accredited master's programme, the Master of Public Information Management (in collaboration with Erasmus University Rotterdam).


PBLQ can draw on an extensive international network of partners.
