The Federal Administration consists of seven departments, the Federal Chancellery and almost 90 offices. With nearly 37’000 employees it is one of the largest employers in Switzerland.
Companies owned by the Swiss Federation
The Confederation’s shareholder responsibilities are performed by the General Secretariat DETEC (Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications) in cooperation with the Federal Finance Administration.
Cantons, cities and municipalities
Switzerland consists of 26 cantons and over 2’500 cities and municipalities. The efficient exchange of information between the different levels of government is therefore a key topic.
