Oxford Policy Management (OPM) is an international development consulting firm which aims to help low- and middle-income countries achieve growth and reduce poverty and disadvantage through public policy reform.

The company works with donor organisations (which have included UNICEF and the World Bank), governments and NGOs focusing on areas such as economic development, health, education, climate change and social welfare, with a strong focus on research. OPM is headquartered in Oxford, UK, and has several hundred staff and a global network of offices. Born out of the University of Oxford in 1979, when it was originally known as the Food Supply Analysis Group, OPM initially focused on applied research to help solve the food security problems of Eastern and Southern Africa. Five years later it became the Food Studies Group, addressing both the supply and demand sides of public services, supported by statistics and survey capabilities.

In 1996 Oxford Policy Management was established as a limited company, separate from the University of Oxford. The company was owned half by staff and half by investors, former employees and friends of OPM, as it is today. In 2007 OPM set up its first international office in Islamabad, Pakistan, led by Pakistani nationals, and by the mid-2010s it had offices across Africa and Asia.
