The Civil Federal Administration, with its 23,000 full-time employees, assists the Federal Council and parliament in its work. It maintains relations between states, creates good general conditions for society and the economy, provides national infrastructure, ensures the security of the state and citizens and, as an independent judiciary, guarantees the enforcement and implementation of Swiss law.

In 2019, the Civil Federal Administration was able to exceed its targets set in 2006 and reduce its environmental impact by more than a third. In its Resources and Environmental Management programme RUMBA, the Civil Federal Administration is now laying down the guidelines for further progress and the 2020-2023 Strategy, while continuing to set itself ambitious goals.
