Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO)


The Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) has been the supreme financial supervisory body of the Swiss Confederation since 1877. It assists the Federal Assembly and the Federal Council. Its independence is guaranteed by the  Federal Audit Office Act (FAOA). The SFAO supervises the financial management of the Federal Administration and numerous semi-governmental and international organisations. Much of its work has been published since 2014. Its history is the subject of a special website. Finally, the SFAO is the Federal Administration’s contact point for whistle-blowers.
