Key ICT project renewal of the biometrics system platform

State Secretariat for Migration

Key facts

In the third quarter of 2018, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the programme for the renewal of the biometrics system platform (ESYSP) for the second time. The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) intends to renew the central platform components for biometric data entry and also procure new data entry devices with this key ICT project. At the same time, the specialist applications that use the data to create a passport, for example, will be adapted and further developed. All the projects in the programme are in the implementation phase. The total costs are estimated at CHF 46.6 million.
