Implementation of key recommendations

Federal Office of Public Health

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) conducted a follow-up audit on the implementation of its main recommendations at the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). The four recommendations stem from the SFAO’s audit, published in 2022, on the settlement procedure for COVID-19 testing costs. The Confederation assumed costs of CHF 3 billion for over 23 million COVID-19 tests between 2020 and 2022. The recommendations concerned measures to combat improper settlements and reduce testing costs.
