Implementation of the subsidy measures agreed since 2008

Federal Finance Administration

Key facts

On behalf of the Federal Council, the Federal Finance Administration (FFA) periodically reviews federal subsidies (around CHF 38.8 billion annually, as at end of 2016) for their compliance with the principles of the Subsidies Act and for their effective and economic performance of duties. The Federal Council provides a written report on this. Before 2008, all subsidies were reviewed, since 2014 one department is reviewed per year, a report on which is included in the notes to the state financial statements.
