Switzerland (The Call for Innovative and Open Government: An Overview of Country Initiatives)

According to current financial planning, federal government expenditure for the period 2011-14 amounts to CHF 63-68 billion per annum. Planned expenditure cuts add up to CHF 1.5 billion p.a. However, some of these cuts have no influence on service delivery (lower interest charge on public debt, compensation of investments which were brought together to stimulate economic growth in 2009, adaptation of planned expenditure to lower inflation forecasts). The remaining cuts amount to CHF 150 million in 2011 and CHF 450-500 million for 2012-14. Compared to total expenditure, this amount is too small to have severe impacts on service delivery.
