Audit Audit of implementation of the financial supervision concept in the area of asylum State Secretariat for Migration

Audit number: 15339

In respect of social assistance for asylum-seekers and refugees, in 2015 the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) paid the cantons a total of CHF 968 million in subsidies in the form of flat-rate contributions. The Subsidies Division is responsible for the correct calculation of the subsidies and financial supervision thereof. In April 2013, SEM adjusted the calculation in line with a new financing system, and it updated the supervision concept in April 2015. The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) examined both of those new developments.
