National fraud initiative fair
We participate in the National Fraud Initiative data matching
exercise carried out by the Audit Commission. Our participation
assists in the prevention and detection of fraud against Places for
People and organisations in the public sector. We participate on a
voluntary basis and provide the Audit Commission with particular
sets of data for matching as set out in the Audit Commission's
Data matching compares computer records held by one body against
other computer records held by the same or another body to see how
far they match. This is usually personal information. Computerised
data matching allows fraudulent claims and payments to be
identified. When a match is found it may indicate that there is an
inconsistency which requires further investigation. No assumption
can be made as to whether there is fraud, error or other
explanation until an investigation is carried out.
The use of data by the Audit Commission in a data matching
exercise is carried out with statutory authority under its powers
in Part 2A of the
Audit Commission Act 1998. It does not require the consent of
the individuals concerned under the Data Protection Act 1998.
