Audit Key ICT project SUPERB focusing on master data - Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics

For around 20 years, the civil Federal Administration has been using SAP's standard software for its support processes (finance, personnel, logistics and procurement, and real estate). In 2015, SAP announced that it was completely overhauling this software and that the previous version would be neither further developed nor supported from the end of 2025. It is thus imperative that it be replaced. In 2017, the Federal Council decided to switch to the new SAP solution (S/4HANA). It launched two implementation programmes for this purpose: SUPERB for the civil Federal Administration, ERP systems D/ar for the operationally relevant administrative units (Defence, etc.).

Audit Armed Forces Pharmacy SAP migration - Defence Group / Armed Forces Logistics Organisation

Processes for the Armed Forces Pharmacy and the Armed Forces Logistics Organisation (AFLO) are currently run on two separate SAP systems. The project to integrate the Armed Forces Pharmacy's SAP system into that of the Defence Group aims to relocate around 150 processes. In addition, the project must ensure compliance with national legislation on therapeutic products, as well as with good practice (GxP). The integration project is now in the implementation phase, with the production phase scheduled for January 2021. It is part of the ERP LOG project; the cost of the 2020 project tranche is estimated at around CHF 18 million.

Audit Former key ICT project Fiscal IT - Federal Tax Administration

At the end of 2018, the Federal Tax Administration (FTA) completed the Fiscal IT programme and all of the associated projects. It transferred the newly established systems to the Core IT operating organisation, run in collaboration with the Federal Office of Information Technology, Systems and Telecommunication (FOITT). The FTA optimised its processes with Fiscal IT and thus saved 98.4 jobs in the specialist divisions in favour of other tasks. It used some of these (27.8 jobs) to expand the IT area, for example.
