CBS Multi-annual Programme 2024-2028

Consultation annex

At the beginning of 2022, CBS conducted discussions with various external parties, namely:

  • Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK)
  • Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK)
  • Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (IenW)
  • Ministry of Justice and Security (JenV)
  • Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW)
  • Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW)
  • Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS)
  • Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis (CPB)
  • PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL)
  • Netherlands Institute for Social Research (SCP)
  • National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM)
  • Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR)
  • Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst)
  • De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB)
  • Chamber of Commerce (KVK)
  • Employee Insurance Agency (UWV)

Discussions were held at the beginning of 2022 in the CBS users’ councils, in which various representatives from science, business and government are represented:

  • Communication Council
  • Business economic Statistics Users’ Council
  • Macroeconomic Statistics Users’ Council
  • Methodology Advisory Board Microdata Users’ Council
  • Social Statistics and Statistics of the Living Environment Users’ Council

After the external consultation, an internal consultation took place within CBS. A number of broadly composed reflection teams were created for this purpose. Specific groups, namely young CBS employees and novice managers, were also asked to reflect. All groups provided their comments and suggestions for the Multi-annual Programme.

The discussions and the input from our own organisation formed the basis for the further discussions of the Board of Directors of CBS in the spring of 2022. The Advisory Council was also consulted as part of this process. In September 2022, the users’ councils were informed in greater detail about the main points of the Multi-annual Programme.
