Federal Statistical Office

Key facts

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) conducted a procurement audit at the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) with a focus on needs and benefits analysis and the direct award of contracts. The underlying procurement organisation was also assessed. In 2018, the FSO had 126 contracts outside the Confederation, with a cost ceiling of CHF 43.8 million and an order volume of CHF 9.9 million. A large part of this was generated by the procurement of statistics, expert reports and surveys.
