Task areas

The aim of our audit activities is to verify the economical use of funds of the administrative units of the central and decentralised Federal Administration. The focus is on the risk-oriented evaluation of construction investments and federal procurements.

Construction audits cover the entire real estate and infrastructure portfolio, such as the Confederation's own research, administrative and military buildings, civil engineering structures in the transport, energy and environmental area, as well as subsidised buildings.

Aside from investments, issues concerning operational maintenance, social and environmental sustainability, and total lifecycle costs are key. Construction audits are carried out by interdisciplinary teams with engineers, architects and financial specialists.

Procurements are a second important area for our audit activities. The audits are holistic. They include a needs assessment, the tender and award process, order processing and usage. Procurements are assessed by experienced procurement and contract specialists.
