The National Center for Public Performance (NCPP) is a research and public service center at Suffolk University’s Institute for Public Service. Devoted to improving performance in the public and nonprofit sectors, NCPP was founded in 1974 to serve as a vehicle for the study, dissemination and recognition of  performance measurement initiatives in government. Previously located at Rutgers University, NCPP is directed by Professor Marc Holzer; Mallory Sullivan, Managing Director; Dr. Andrew Ballard, Conference Program Coordinator.

In addition, NCPP specializes in research and teaching in the engagement of citizens and, through the generous support of The Sloan Foundation, has been able to undertake research and teaching in citizen-driven government performance, develop curricular resources and deliver online training for public managers.
