Every five years the Dutch public broadcaster’s (NPO) supervisory board is legally obliged to install an independent commission to evaluate the NPO’s performance. In September 2018 the commission started an evaluation of the period between 2013 and 2018. The final report was published in June 2019. I was the secretary of the commission. Amongst other things I prepared meetings and interviews with representatives of the NPO and other stakeholders and I wrote the final report.
