Facts and figures
The operating income of CHF 37.2 million was CHF 1.3 million under the budget. This was primarily due to services that have not yet been performed for civilian aviation and a decrease in the services performed for the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC). The income not recognised in the financial statement was based on the reduction in the reserves for holidays and overtime.
The global budget operating expenditure (without contributions to internal organisations) was CHF 4.6 million lower than the budget. The main reason for this was various projects and plans that were suspended or delayed in 2016. The budgeted amount included a reallocation of MPM credit from the investment loan (CHF 1.0 million) and assignments of the FOPER and the payroll department and/or IT costs (CHF 1.3 million).
In addition, lower SC rental costs at FOBL (CHF -1.1 million) and lower write-downs not recognised in the financial statement (CHF -1.0 million) resulted in lower costs in comparison with the budget.
