An audit of tax schemes in the Netherlands that reduce the government’s tax take, further to the government’s wish to review the Dutch tax system. We determined which policy goals were being pursued by these tax facilities and instruments, their financial importance, where ministerial responsibilities lay, whether the schemes had been evaluated and how parliament had been informed of them. Parliament can use this information to determine whether policy goals are being achieved through the use of these schemes and weigh the facilities and instruments up against the demands made on the public purse.

Are the tasks of the Employee Insurance Agency (UWV) in balance with the people and resources at its disposal? We looked into this question at the request of the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW). The Agency fulfils an important task for people in a precarious situation. It provides benefits and helps people find work. The frequent changes that have been made in its tasks have inevitably had consequences for its operational management and performance. We carried out this audit in order to provide the House of Representatives, the Minister of SZW and the UWV itself with suggestions on how to safeguard the UWV’s future.

We present the first results of this act in our report, Civic Integration.

We have audited the EU system of CE marking. Why is it that products that do not meet EU safety, health and environmental requirements are nonetheless sold on the EU market? And what is the government doing about the problem? Dozens of products bearing a CE marking are taken off the market every year because they present a risk to consumers. We performed this audit in order to inform the Dutch House of Representatives about the CE marking system and show the House how it could improve its monitoring activities.
