The National Fraud Initiative is a data matching exercise to assist in the prevention and detection of fraud and overpayments.
The Auditor General for Wales requires all local authorities under his powers in Part 3A of the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004, to provide information it holds for this purpose. The information is shared with the Wales Audit Office. As public bodies we are under a duty to protect the public funds that we administer and to this end may use the personal information you may have provided for the following purposes for the prevention and detection of fraud.
We may also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing or administering public funds for these purposes.
For further information on the Auditor General's legal powers and the reasons why particular information is matched, see the Wales Audit Office web-site http://www.audit.wales//about-us/national-fraud-initiative.
The work complies with the The Code of Data Matching Practice of the Auditor General for Wales(http://www.audit.wales//sites/default/files/download_documents/The_Auditor_General's_Code_of_Data_Matching_English.pdf), which ensures personal information is protected appropriately during the process.
