Performance of financial aid for external organisations

Federal Office for Agriculture

Key facts

The Federal Office for Agriculture (FOAG) supports a large number of projects and measures. When selecting contributions to external organisations, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) examined whether the subsidies in the Constitution and in the law have a sufficient legal basis. The SFAO then assessed whether they still make sense and whether they are being implemented economically. In the process, the SFAO was able to demonstrate savings potential in the low eight-figure range.
