Organisation and structure of National Economic Supply

Ensuring the availability of goods and services is the responsibility of the private sector. If the private sector is no longer able to perform this function itself when there are serious shortages, the state intervenes in the marketplace with targeted measures, for example to close gaps in the supply of vital goods and services. This cooperation between the private sector and the state is also reflected in the organisation of the National Economic Supply (NES).

The NES is made up of the Federal Office for National Economic Supply (FONES), the specialist divisions (a militia organisation made up of 250 experts from the private sector and representatives of the federal and cantonal administrations) and other administrative branches of the federal administration. It is headed by the Delegate for National Economic Supply.
