A system of active management and care of staff provides our managers with the tools for effective staff management. This also contributes to FOT staff being able to work in a challenging and motivating environment.
Accounts and controlling
Every year we draw up the FOT's draft budget and financial planning, and put together the figures for the Confederation's State Accounts. We continuously monitor the Federal Office's funding streams (ordinary budget and fund for financing large-scale railway projects).
In addition to processing all the incoming and outgoing mail, we are responsible for safety in the building, setting up work stations including telephones, and procuring office materials. We also manage all the meeting rooms and official vehicles, and act as a turntable for the Swiss Federal Archives and other libraries.
We translate a variety of texts, such as laws, parliamentary motions, speeches etc., predominantly on transport policy, into German, French, and Italian, and if desired into English as well.
