II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
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. The workflow for each audit can therefore change during the process.
Through the long-term engagement, the selected partner will operate the solution, and work with the NAO develop it further to meet future requirements.
The NAO will hold two webinars to outline the requirements and key features of the procurement process. The content will also made available to suppliers who cannot attend in real time.
