Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the project “DDPS/federal data centres 2020 ICT architecture and infrastructure (ICT A&I)”, which the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS) split off from the DDPS data centre 2020 programme in mid-2022. Under the ICT A&I project, the technical services of the Armed Forces new digitalisation platform (NDP) are to be provided by the Cyber Command and an external supplier. The aim is to set up an operating platform that ensures automated operation of information and communication technology (ICT) in the data centres by means of virtualised systems, i.e. an abstraction of physical IT resources which have the same functions.
