The Neutrino Factory produces high-energy neutrino beams with a well-defined flavour content and energy spectrum from the decay of intense, high-energy, stored muon beams. The muon stor- age rings include long straight sections that are directed toward neutrino detectors that are sited several thousand kilometers away. This paper outlines the status of the accelerator facility de- scribed in the Interim Design Report (IDR) recently completed by the International Design Study for a Neutrino Factory (IDS-NF). We give a baseline specification for the accelerator, describe the accelerator subsystems that comprise it and briefly indicate some of the accelerator-physics challenges that such a facility presents.
