National Fraud Initiative – Fair Processing Notice
This authority is required by law to protect the public funds it administers. It
may share information provided to it with other bodies responsible for;
auditing, or administering public funds, or where undertaking a public function,
in order to prevent and detect fraud.
The Cabinet Office is responsible for carrying out data matching exercises.
Data matching involves comparing 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
potentially fraudulent claims and payments to be identified. 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.
We participate in the Cabinet Office’s
National Fraud Initiative
: a data
matching exercise to assist in the prevention and detection of fraud. We are
required to provide particular sets of data to the Minister for the Cabinet
Office for matching for each exercise.
The use of data by the Cabinet Office in a data matching exercise is carried out
with statutory authority under Part 6 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act
2014. It does not require the consent of the individuals concerned under the
Data Protection Act 1998.
Data matching by the Cabinet Office is subject to a Code of Practice.
View further information on the Cabinet Office’s legal powers and the reasons
why it matches particular information.
