Department Policy and Public Sector Advice

The institute offers tailored consultation services on a scientific basis for public institutions. In this way, research results can quickly be put into practice and, at the same time, research can continue to focus on application.

The Department Policy and Public Sector Advice is closely interlinked with research. Firstly, this ensures the quick transfer of scientific insights into practical administrative action. Secondly, important stimuli for further research are gleaned from practical application, meaning that the research can be optimally orientated towards the requirements of administrative bodies.

The FÖV offers a broad spectrum of consultation services for public bodies on all levels. In addition, there are specialised consultation divisions:

• Institute for Regulatory Impact Assessment and Evaluation (InGFA)
• Institute for Administrative Reform (InVR)
• Institute for Administrative Communication (InVK)
