Audit Procurement - Federal Roads Office

In spring 2019, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) audited the procurement organisation at the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO). Procurement for the planning, construction and maintenance of motorways is the responsibility of FEDRO. In 2017, some 3,000 procurements worth over CHF 1.4 billion were carried out. The SFAO audited the organisation and processes in centralised procurement for services and ICT, as well as in decentralised procurement for motorways, using the branch 3 in Zofingen as an example.

Follow-up audit Main recommendations - Federal Roads Office

The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) conducted a follow-up audit at the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO) on the implementation of recommendations issued in the SFAO report from 2015. The focus of the new audit was on project management, and especially project owner support. In the original audit, the SFAO had criticised the lack of a procurement strategy at FEDRO, or of any consistent description of tasks, powers and responsibilities for project owner support, including unclear rules at the branches for dealing with conflicts of interest. In addition, the SFAO requested FEDRO to introduce requirements planning at the branches, and to optimise the controlling instruments.

Audit Air traffic management governance and supervision - Federal Office of Civil Aviation

The Swiss aviation safety requirements are largely based on the regulations drawn up by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and issued by the European Commission. Switzerland adopts these regulations and the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA), as the statutory supervisory authority, checks compliance with them.
