Back in April last year I had the opportunity to work on the audit of the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in Copenhagen. The UN was an audit I had been keen to get on right from the start of my time here, as I am really interested in international issues – I volunteered in Ghana in the summer before joining the NAO and had previously done an internship with a human rights charity. more… UN audit in Copenhagen: New challenges abound

The Christmas break gives us a chance to put a bit of a distance between us and the previous year. I always feel the time off is necessary to forget about work – to enjoy (sparingly) spending time with family. To overindulge (gloriously) on Christmas Eve at my traditional high school reunion. Most importantly, to hope (optimistically) that certain people will forget what happened at the office Christmas parties the previous month.

Although most of the time I’m allocated to the Department of Health and related bodies’ audits, there are opportunities to be involved in audits for our international clients. The past few weeks I’ve been working on the UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime), which is based in Vienna, Austria. The UN (United Nations) is a fascinating client to work on, due to the wide range of activities it undertakes and its funding structure (some fixed funding or “regular budget” and some voluntary contributions). There are also some quite nice audit locations such as New York, Geneva and Copenhagen that follows such work! more… International audits: The United Nations
