The FOGE provides the cantons and communes with information and advice on how to implement equal pay audits. The audited organisations also benefit from this as their administrative burden is reduced.
The FOGE offers the following services to interested authorities:
- Advice on the implementation and conduct of equal pay audits;
- Advice from specialists who can also be engaged to conduct equal pay audits;
- Advice on tenders and contracts for analyses, preparation of standardised documents and good practice;
- Training for specialists from the public administration.
Request for financial support
A further possibility open to cantons and communes wishing to implement equal pay audits in public procurement or when awarding subsidies is to apply to the FOGE for financial support.
