efficient accessibility audit process

Hi all. I hope you are well.

I'd like to get your thoughts on an efficient audit process based on
your experience.

By saying audit process, I am referring to checking an already finished
site / set of pages, identifying the issues based on WCAG, and providing
recommendations. Efficient to me means there are no duplications of work
being done and a process that involves the entire team for maximum

I recognise that an audit process needs to include the entire team, and
not just the person doing screen reader testing. Generally the team
consists of a business analyst, a front end developer, a QA / screen
reader  tester, and the accessibility program manager.

May I ask if anyone has performed audits with this type of setting and
resources/expertise? Basically, what I'm needing ideas about is the
steps in between the two points:

* Point A: We receive audit work from a client
* We do the steps in the audit process
* Point B: We submit the audit report to the client.

 Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if
you need more info regarding this question.
