The aim of the revision of the indicator system for the Federal Council and Parliament was to develop a monitoring system for the legislature programme that enables the statistical observation of the Federal Council's objectives. In addition, the system must provide the necessary statistical information for the drafting of the situation analysis in the Federal Council's dispatch on the legislature plan and in the Federal Council's annual reports. The principles guiding the revision included stability - the system must be usable for several legislature periods -, transparency, the active participation of the departments and federal offices as well as the observation of the principles of official statistics. This report depicts the concept, methods and processes which led to the construction of the indicator system. Furthermore, the procedure used for the selection of indicators is documented, the rules for the individual steps of the project are described and the deliberations concerning the publication are presented.
