    nameNo dataNational Fraud Initiative - HMRC and Local Authority Counter Fraud Pilot
    purposeNo dataThe National Fraud Initiative (NFI) is the Cabinet Office’s UK-wide data matching exercise. It is exploring the potential value and effectiveness of using HMRC data to better identify and prevent fraud. We will share records containing personal data with HMRC. These will be matched against HMRC records and additional HMRC information appended and fed back to the NFI to be evaluated as to how it may improve the NFI national exercise.
    information-sharing-benefitsNo dataThe expected benefits are; 1. To provide additional intelligence on data matches already generated and released by the NFI for participant organisations to consider and investigate where appropriate; 2. To allow the NFI to update its fraud risk scoring of these released matches; 3. To assist with the reduction of potential false positive data match disclosure within the existing NFI data matching: and 4. To allow additional counter fraud data matches to be generated from just the additional HMRC results.
