Four groups are involved in the day-to-day running of PISA.

  • OECD Secretariat - responsible for the day-to-day management of PISA.

  • PISA Governing Board - determines the policy priorities and makes sure that these are respected during the implementation of each PISA survey.

  • PISA National Project Managers (NPMs) oversee the implementation of PISA in each participating country/economy.

  • International contractors - they design and implement the surveys. Questions for the international contractors should first be directed to the OECD Secretariat.
