Audit Property management for motorways - Federal Roads Office

In 2008, motorways were transferred from the cantons to the Confederation. Since then, the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO) has been responsible for the 3,800 plots that have been built. The value of the properties is posted in the balance sheet at more than CHF 4.2 billion. FEDRO invests annually in the construction of new sections as well as in the expansion and maintenance of the existing network. In 2018, the federal government invested about CHF 1.9 billion.

Audit Risk management - Swiss Post

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) examined Swiss Post's risk management from May to September 2018. The general part of the audit mandate assessed the question of whether the Confederation, as the owner, sets suitable requirements for risk management and whether Swiss Post fulfils them. Based on the two case studies PostBus France and Liechtenstein, the SFAO examined in a specific section whether Swiss Post assesses, manages and communicates its risks in these two companies at the appropriate levels. Onsite visits were also made in Lyon and Vaduz. The totality of Swiss Post's foreign risks were not assessed and these two case studies are therefore not representative.

Evaluation Effectiveness of measures against particulate matter - Federal Office for the Environment

High levels of air pollution caused by pollutants such as particulate matter cause serious damage to people's health and the environment. The economic consequential costs for the Swiss population alone are estimated at over CHF 11 billion per year. Switzerland has achieved considerable success in the fight against general air pollution in recent decades, but there is still a long way to go to reach the objective of safe air quality.
