Key ICT project Fiscal IT

Federal Tax Administration

Key facts

At the end of 2014, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the Federal Tax Administration’s (FTA) key ICT project Fiscal IT for the second time. Fiscal IT will update the FTA’s IT.

Great attention from management – positive development overall
The audit focused on planning and controlling. The question of whether the FTA as an organisation has been preparing itself adequately for the changes arising from Fiscal IT was also analysed in depth.

The FTA’s IT landscape is largely based on obsolete technology. It no longer supports the FTA’s business processes adequately. The main aim of Fiscal IT is to ensure that the FTA remains operational in the future too. The programme consists of 29 projects. It started in spring 2013 and will be completed at the end of 2018. It has a budget of CHF 85.2 million and was approved by the Federal Council on 10 April 2013.
