Audit 2021 fiscal equalization between the Confederation and the cantons - Review of data processing by cantonal and federal offices

The total volume of fiscal equalization (NFE) for 2021 is CHF 5,216 million, representing a year-on-year decrease of 1.2% (CHF 5,282 million). This decline is the result of the partial legislative revision that entered into force on 1 January 2020, which changed the calculation of the financing allocated to the financially weak cantons and in the division of the funds paid in by the Confederation and the financially strong cantons. Temporary mitigation measures in favour of financially weak cantons will also allow the payment of an amount of CHF 80 million in 2021.

Audits COVID-19: fourth interim report 15 October 2020 - Federal measures

The crisis is not over. However, an increasing sense of routine and calm in dealing with the situation is being observed in the Federal Administration; we have to come to terms with the crisis as being the "new normal". The emergency measures that were put in place virtually overnight have either expired or been incorporated into ordinary law. The audits initiated by the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) to accompany the emergency measures have thus also come to an end. This is therefore both the fourth and the last interim report on the SFAO's accompanying COVID-19 audits in 2020. Once again, the focus was on current results and combating abuse.
