A unique chance to hack NAO, ONS and Parliamentary information in one place at one time

Interested in how Parliament works; how public sector expenditure is audited; or the key statistics generated by the public sector? Then come to #AccHack14 incorporating #ParlyHack14

NAO, ONS and Parliament are holding a joint hack event to look at how they use each others information; what their users want to do with their data and information; and how to improve what they do online.

So are you an armchair auditor? Keen on Parliamentary processes? Use lots of public sector data? Then this is the event for you. There is the bonus opportunity to stay overnight in the NAO buildiing if you so desire.

There will also be a follow up event during Parliament week so that non developers can see what was achieved during the hack – more details to follow.

Who is organising the event?

  • National Audit Office (NAO) – Nick Halliday
  • Office of National Statistics (ONS) – Matt Jukes
  • Parliament – Tracy Green […]
