Latest press release
Central Compensation Office straightens things out and moves forward - PA 15381
The Central Compensation Office (CCO) is emerging from the turmoil. An audit carried out by the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) found a marked improvement in the situation following the measures taken by the Federal Finance Administration and the new management of the CCO in August 2014. There has been a reorganisation in IT and procurement, two areas where the deficiencies had already been notified directly by the SFAO to the Head of the Federal Department of Finance.
Swiss Federal Audit Office's priorities for 2016
The Federal Council has taken note of the annual programme of the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) for 2016. This programme is drawn up completely independently by the SFAO. Aside from the emphasis placed on profitability audits, the SFAO's teams will audit several significant federal IT projects and will continue their work on issues associated with federal purchases.
