Contributions for Swiss non-governmental organizations
The SDC works in particular with organizations which, by virtue of their experience and their range of activities, play a leading role in development cooperation. This occurs mainly in the following forms:
- Programme contributions/ focus contributions
Programme/focus contributions are financial contributions by the SDC to longstanding development programmes implemented by Swiss non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The maximum contribution is 50% of programme costs. The NGOs are responsible for the programme.

The term mandate refers to the awarding of contracts to private organizations to carry out a project or program. In this case the over-all project costs and responsibility are assumed by and remain with the Confederation, while the state makes use of the capacities and expertise available to the NGOs . As a rule, such contracts are submitted to public tender.
