The NAO gives due importance to its international relations, especially with other Supreme Audit Institutions. The NAO views the participation in state auditing-related international events as a fundamental way of sharing and learning from the experiences of our overseas colleagues. We view such an approach as a fundamental way of counterbalancing an ‘insular mentality’ usually associated with small island states.
The NAO is participating in various international working groups. These include several Working Groups within the EU Member State Supreme Audit Institutions network (so-called Contact Committee - http://www.contactcommittee.eu), the European Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions( EUROSAI) Working Group on Good Practices Guide on Audit Quality, and, the EUROSAI Working Group for Environmental audit.
