BoxThis section contains SFAO audits on the procurement of goods and services by the Confederation.

Audit Procurement - Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland

The Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland (OAG) is responsible for investigating and bringing charges relating to criminal offences that fall under federal jurisdiction. Since 2011, the OAG has been a self-governing authority outside the Federal Administration. However, the OAG remains subject to federal law on the submission of tenders. It carries out procurements largely independently, rather than through the central federal procurement offices.

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.
