Larva—External Audit

Reveal the hidden assumptions and limitations of your models and decision processes with an external audit.

BENEFITS OF AN EXTERNAL AUDIT

Models are essential to check the scientific, technical and economic value of your decisions. But they can be vulnerable when presented to society’s oversight. An external audit helps you build trust with stakeholders and users through more transparency about the hidden assumptions in your models and decision processes. Our procedures seek to preserve your mathematical models as a valuable tool to support complex decisions while responding to the increasing societal demands for more transparency and an integrated approach to models and decision-making processes.

We will work together with your teams to audit their models and decision-making processes through a series of quality checks.

AN EXTERNAL AUDIT CHECKS FOR

Assumptions

Hidden assumptions in the model by performing global uncertainty and sensitivity analyses.

Complexity

Impact of adding more complexity to the model on the accuracy of its predictions.

Framing

Purpose and context of the model to reveal possible hidden normative choices.

Ignorance

Unknowns hidden by the model and that can artificially limit the technology and policy options.
