Implementation of recommendations in the area of procurement

Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) conducted a follow-up audit at the Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland (OAG) on the implementation of recommendations made in 2019. The Criminal Justice Authorities Act, which came into force in 2011, made the OAG a self-governing authority outside the Federal Administration. As a contracting authority, the OAG is subject to the Public Procurement Act (PPA Art. 4 para. 1 lit. c). It is not subject to the Ordinance on the Organisation of Federal Public Procurement and therefore does not have to procure through the central federal procurement offices.
