Data matching

The Council is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers. The Council may therefore use the information you have provided to the Council for preventing and detecting fraud. It may do this by sharing the information you have provided with other departments in the Council and also with other bodies responsible for administering or auditing public funds.

Data matching involves comparing computer records held by one service or organisation against other computer records held by the same or another body. This is usually personal information. Computerised data matching allows potentially fraudulent claims and payments to be identified. Where a match is found it indicates 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.

Data matching will be carried out in accordance with the principles of the Data Matching Code of Practice for the National Fraud Initiative.
