Audit Key ICT project Armed Forces voice system - Defence Group, Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport

Audit number: 18550

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the Armed Forces voice system (VSdA) project for the first time in the first quarter of 2018. The Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS) wishes to support the command capability of the Armed Forces in all situations with this project. To this end, it is procuring a telephony solution for a dedicated group of Armed Forces participants and is investing around CHF 32 million, including personnel costs. That amount does not include the additional costs for expanding real estate, dismantling the old systems and operating the solution on the command network.
