Audit Key ICT project Renewal of the biometrics system platform - State Secretariat for Migration

Audit number: 21494

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the programme for the renewal of the biometrics system platform for the third time. The programme will procure and introduce new standard systems for recording biometric data for the Swiss passport, the identity card and residence permits for foreign nationals. The systems need to be replaced because essential components are reaching the end of their lifespan. The main focus of this audit was on the revised overall planning, which became necessary due to the termination of the collaboration with the main supplier.
