Most of the funds for information and communication technologies (ICT) are allocated on a decentralised basis in the departments and administrative units. This principle remained unchanged with the entry into force of the revised Federal Information Technology Ordinance (FITO) on 1 January 2012. Under the revised FITO, the FITSU manages the ICT resources allocated centrally at federal level.
- Central ITC resources
for ICT projects that cannot be financed by the administrative units themselves.
- Federal ICT reserve
for urgent ICT projects that cannot be planned.
- Investment credit for ICT standard services.
The Federal Council decides on the allocation of central ICT resources for important ICT projects in the administrative units or at federal level during the ordinary budget process.
W003 - Federal Council directives for financial management in the area of ICT
The corresponding processes and rules are described in the Federal Council directives for financial management in the area of ICT, which were adopted by the Federal Council on 13 December 2013 and are published on the FITSU intranet.
