Audit Procurement of the 12cm mortar 16 - armasuisse

Following the rejection of the fund to procure the Gripen fighter aircraft (Federal Act on the Fund to procure the Gripen Fighter Aircraft) in 2014, the Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS) decided to use the freed-up funds to remedy the shortfalls in military equipment for the indirect fire support of combat battalions, among other things.

Audit Procurement - Federal Statistical Office

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) conducted a procurement audit at the Federal Statistical Office (FSO) with a focus on needs and benefits analysis and the direct award of contracts. The underlying procurement organisation was also assessed. In 2018, the FSO had 126 contracts outside the Confederation, with a cost ceiling of CHF 43.8 million and an order volume of CHF 9.9 million. A large part of this was generated by the procurement of statistics, expert reports and surveys.

Audit Procurement - Federal Roads Office

In spring 2019, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the procurement organisation at the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO). Procurement for the planning, construction and maintenance of motorways is the responsibility of FEDRO. In 2017, some 3,000 procurements worth over CHF 1.4 billion were carried out. The SFAO audited the organisation and processes in centralised procurement for services and ICT, as well as in decentralised procurement for motorways, using the branch 3 in Zofingen as an example.
