About

The International Hackathon takes place in Prague from March 3rd to 5th, 2020.

Participants

Hackathon addresses IT experts, data analysts, graphic designers, and auditors from Supreme Audit Institutions /SAIs/ associated in EUROSAI. There is no fee for participation and participants will be provided with food and drinks throughout the coding sessions.

Goal of the Hackathon

The International Hackathon event aims at finding solutions, i.e., applications or visualizations, in order to improve the effectiveness of processes carried out by SAIs while saving costs, to simplify auditors' work, for example when identifying priority areas, and to reduce the administrative burden. Finally, new tools for international comparison of audit outcomes should be created.

Data sets

All these products should be created through the use of data sets provided by individual audit institutions, which will participate at the Hackathon. The data will also include those publicly available in the EUROSAI countries, supplied by national statistical offices, as well as by the other institutions, e.g., EUROSTAT. For the event purposes, participants may be also provided with so-called simulated data sets about audits, which do not reflect actually performed audits, but are thematically related to audited areas.

Results

Results should be divided into three categories:

  1. tools making the SAI's operation less expensive and more effective;
  2. tools making audit work more effective;
  3. tools enabling international comparisons of audit outcomes and analytical activities of SAIs.

Accommodation

Travel cost and the accommodation should be paid by the participants. The accommodation is pre-arranged in the Mama Shelter Prague hotel close to the SAO (https://www.mamashelter.com/fr/prague).
