Timely payment of subsidies

Federal Finance Administration

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) conducted a horizontal audit of on-time payment to subsidy recipients. The selection of cases was based on Payment Categories 3600, “Contributions to running expenses”, which amounted to more than CHF 100 million in 2005. The payment dates in these categories in 2006 were audited. The audit thus covered 33 financial aids and compensations, but also payments that are not considered subsidies by law. The total volume of the audited payments amounted to approximately CHF 27 billion.
