In this chapter we focus on external policy research providers in the Netherlands, or in other words, the contractors of policy research, and on the interaction between clients and contractors of policy research. Most Dutch policy research at policy-making bodies is provided by internal research agencies, but there is also a substantial market for policy research conducted as contract research and this chapter describes how this market operates. Where in the Netherlands a large part of the research is carried out by private agencies, in the neighbouring countries this research is primarily conducted by universities or state institutions. As a result of this, we see a lot of public tenders in the Netherlands, while in the neighbouring countries this is only the case to a limited extent.
