The NAO is the UK’s independent public spending watchdog. It supports Parliament in holding government to account and helps improve public services through high-quality audits.The NAO is transforming how it undertakes financial audits. It has set out a programme to improve the quality and efficiency of NAO audits, and to meet the requirements of the revised ISA (UK) 315 standard.

Solution proposals of all types are welcomed. The best solution to meet the requirements could be based on an existing software product, or configuration of a platform, or a development of separate components.The key steps in the audit workflow are predefined. The path through them is defined by analysis of the audited organisation’s financial data, and by the risks identified in each step.
