The SFAO conducted a financial supervision and procurement audit in the Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics (FOBL) and in the Federal IT Steering Unit (FITSU) during the second quarter of 2015. One area of focus was the cost effectiveness assessment of the procurement of ICT products with the potential to be standard products. In particular, the fields considered concern criteria for standards, investment protection, lifecycle costs, procurement bundling and activities for establishing ICT standard products. Based on the statistics for the Confederation's procurement payments, the ICT procurement volume was just over CHF 298 million in 2013 according to the FOBL.
