The Confederation risk management as a management tool

Federal Department of Finance, Federal Finance Administration

Key facts

The risks of the Federal Administration (Fed. Adm.) are diverse and can, in certain cases, be associated with very negative effects. The most recent example is the payment of CHF 215 million for federal sureties for Switzerland’s deep-sea fleet. The Confederation risk management’s role is to identify, analyse and manage federal risks. All units of the Fed. Adm. are obliged to perform risk management.
