Audit Use of funds - Swiss National Museum

The Swiss National Museum (SNM) has a mandate under the Museums and Collections Act (MusCA) to preserve and exhibit Swiss cultural heritage. It does this within the framework of its activities of collecting and organising exhibitions. The SNM is made up of the National Museum Zurich, the Château de Prangins, the Forum of Swiss History in Schwyz and the Collection Centre in Affoltern am Albis. Every year, the SNM receives a federal contribution of around CHF 30 million, plus around CHF 20 million for accommodation. The SNM has been a federal institution under public law since 2010. It is supervised by the General Secretariat of the Federal Department of Home Affairs.

Audit Youth and Sport subsidies: synthesis report - Federal Office of Sport

The Youth and Sport (Y+S) programme of the Federal Office of Sport (FOSPO) supports organisers – mainly sports clubs – of sports courses and camps for children and young people with contributions. Approximately CHF 100 million, or about 80% of FOSPO's total subsidy credit, is used to support around 70 sports and disciplines and over 600,000 participants per year. FOSPO is responsible for the programme and works together with sports associations and the cantons, which in turn are responsible for approvals and systematic controls of courses and camps. A key programme objective is the basic and advanced training of Y+S instructors.
