Management of ICT standard services by the FITSU
The Federal Council specifies the standard services, as well as the relevant market model. The FITSU has been tasked with the management of ICT standard services.
For each standard service, the FITSU sets up a single central management function for requirements and service providers at federal level. In consultation with the departments, the required functionalities, sourcing and the model for service procurement and internal billing are defined and submitted to the Federal Council. The principle of standard services allows for more effective steering and management of a substantial interdepartmental sub-segment of IT services by the Federal Council, and ultimately also enables synergies to be exploited and IT costs to be reduced.
