This strategy was adopted by the Federal Council on 3 April 2020. On 1 January 2021, the Federal Administration Information Technology Ordinance was merged with the Ordinance of 25 November 2020 on the Coordination of the Digital Transformation and ICT Steering in the Federal Administration (DTIO, SR 172.010.58), which resulted in a corresponding adaptation of this. The Federal Digital Transformation and ICT Steering Council (FDTC) did not feel the need for any material adjustments, nor did the higher-level Conference of Secretaries General (CSG) require them. In order to distinguish the current strategy, which takes into account the additional provisions now contained in the DTIO, from the previous strategy, the revised version is now called the digitalisation strategy (and no longer the ICT strategy). The new title also better reflects the Federal Council's current mandate of developing this strategy and encouraging the digital transformation.
The ICT strategy consists of the following components:
- Basic strategy:
It consists of the vision, the principles and describes the strategic directions.
- Annex A:
Planning domains and specifications (is part of the above: «Basic strategy»).
- Annex B:
Master Plan (The Master Plan is maintained as a separate document).
