National Fraud Initiative

The National Fraud Initiative (NFI) is a sophisticated data matching exercise designed tod to protect the public funds the Trust administers. The NFI is run by the Cabinet Office which matches electronic data within and between participating bodies to prevent and detect fraudulent and erroneous payments from the public purse. Participants include NHS bodies, local authorities, government departments and other agencies and some private sector organisations.

The National Fraud Initiative has enabled participating organisations to prevent and detect over £245m million fraud and error in the period 1 April 2018 to 4 April 2020.

Data matching involves comparing sets of data, such as payroll or benefits records of a body, against other records held by the same or another body, and allows potentially fraudulent claims and payments to be identified and investigated. The exercise is run every two years. Where 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 data is processed in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 and the Code of Data Matching Practice 2008 and is carried out by the Cabinet Office under the statutory powers conferred upon the Minister of the Cabinet Office by Part 6 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014. Full details of the legal basis is available on the Gov.UK website.
