Key facts

Issues concerning federalism are of central importance in Switzerland, and audits by the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) involving the cantons are not uncommon. These audits take three forms. The first type verifies the correct application of federal law, subsidy audits make up the second group and IT-related issues form the third group.
