Key ICT project ASALfutur

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the ASALfutur project at the Unemployment Insurance Compensation Office. The ASAL ICT system is used to pay unemployment benefits of around CHF 5 billion a year to an average of 118,000 unemployed people. The now outdated ICT system entered into operation in 1993 and is to be replaced by a new one by 2021. The SFAO already considered ASALfutur as part of the 2017 governance audit.
