The Accelerator Project (previously Audit Constellation Project) is a 5-year, multi-component partnership including peer SAIs as well as advisors from some of the world’s most prestigious non-governmental organisations.
The purpose of the partnership is to support the NAO to deliver its strategic priorities during and beyond the COVID-19 crisis. In doing so, it aims to build up not just the NAO, but also the ecosystem of actors needed to ensure audits lead to meaningful change for citizens. This aim is grounded in Principle 12 (The value and benefits of SAIs) of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions.
Everything the partners do is led by NAO and designed to enable and accelerate the office’s Strategic Development Plan. The project brings together a first-rate team of NAO staff, peers, and other advisors to tackle the office’s biggest challenges—from improving key internal procedures through to delivering high-quality and citizen-friendly versions of audit reports. It is also piloting an agile approach, with an emphasis on empowerment, experimentation, feedback, and iteration.
Further, the unique partnership structure, including an Advisory Council made up of peers as well as international NGOs, is fostering relationships for NAO both in and outside of the INTOSAI community that will long outlast the project itself.
