Audit Public procurement - ETH domain

According to its own account, the ETH domain with both Institutes of Technology and the four research institutions purchases goods and services to the value of approximately CHF 1 billion each year (including property procurement and management and library acquisitions). The six institutions' autonomy as public federal institutions with their own legal identities is a challenge for common procurements. On its initiative, KoBe ETH+ (coordinated procurement in the ETH domain and selected partner organisations) was created as a link in 2003. The purchasing volumes which can be influenced by KoBe ETH+ amount to around CHF 150 million per year.
