Swiss Federal Audit Office publishes its 2013 annual report

The Federal Council has taken note of the 2013 annual report of the Swiss Federal Audit Office. The audits conducted covered not only the Federal Administration, but also the beneficiaries of subsidies in Switzerland and abroad.

The activity report gives an overview of all the audits carried out during the year just ended. The audits conducted in the Federal Administration concerned primarily the collection of federal taxes, purchases, the management of guarantee credits and several projects. The review of the implementation of the Federal Council's decisions regarding IT security was continued.

Many audits were carried out in various subsidised areas: energy savings, migrant integration measures, public transport, vocational education and training, the Centre for Historic Military Equipment and Switzerland's contribution to the enlargement of the European Union. In a pioneering move, the SFAO also examined the sustainability of Swiss development projects in South Africa and India.
