Who audits the Swiss Federal Audit Office?

Bern, 1.12.2015 – Like every institution, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) also needs to be inspected periodically from an external, critical perspective. The European Court of Auditors (ECA) was tasked with this inspection and has submitted its report. The SFAO will implement its recommendations by the end of 2016.

According to the ECA's report, "the SFAO produces work of high quality, its staff is competent, productive and involved and its highly professional management is determined to modernise the institution and implement these changes."

However, the report also contains nine recommendations. These concern strategy formulation, relations with the Federal Administration's internal audit services, methodology development and audit planning.

The SFAO is committed to implementing the recommendations by the end of 2016.
