Federal Office of Personnel

In 2014, the Federal Administration’s personnel expenses amounted to some CHF 5.4 billion. This sum is spread over 34,772 full-time equivalents. The departments and some of the administrative units (AU) under them enjoy considerable discretion in personnel management matters. However, the human resources employed on both a centralised and decentralised basis must still remain with certain guidelines.
