Audit Selected procurements - armasuisse

armasuisse is the competence centre for procurement, technology and real estate within the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS). Its procurement volume amounted to CHF 2.3 billion in 2021 and CHF 9.3 billion in 2022. The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) examined whether armasuisse has adequate compliance requirements that focus on preventing corruption and whether these are also being enforced. This was done using selected individual cases. In addition, the SFAO reviewed the implementation of three recommendations from an external analysis on improving procurement processes at the DDPS.

Audit Procurements in the asylum system - State Secretariat for Migration

The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) regulates all matters relating to the legislation on foreign nationals and asylum in Switzerland. For this purpose, the SEM operates several federal asylum centres (FAC) in six asylum regions, where all those involved in the asylum procedure are united under one roof. With the sharp rise in asylum numbers since mid-2022 and the additional people from Ukraine seeking protection since spring 2022, the SEM has been confronted with new challenges.
