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 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

I was lucky to have the chance to work on an international audit for the United Nations agency, Office for the Coordination of Human Rights, in Geneva for two weeks. The NAO is currently part of the UN’s Board of Auditors for a six-year term with the Chinese and Tanzanian audit offices, which gives trainees exciting opportunities to do UN work. I was with a team of three others, two of whom had just returned the previous week from another UN office in New York. more… Fondue, chocolate and audit: Geneva calling
