Dictionary of Dutchness


The Informatie Beheer Groep (information management group) is the body currently charged with administering student loans and grants and organising national school exams and integration tests. The IBG is set to disappear in 2010 when it will be swallowed up into the Centrale Financiën Instelling (CFI or Central Finance Agency) to create a single, ‘more targeted’ body with greater ministerial control. For graduates, a letter from the IBG means it is time to start paying back that student loan.
