NFI

The Trust is a mandatory participant in the Cabinet Office' s National Fraud Initiative (NFI) exercise every 2 years. The NFI matches electronic data within and between public and private sector bodies for the purpose of assisting with the prevention and detection of fraud. Some of your personal data will be collected and used by the Cabinet Office to support this exercise. The data required from participants will be the minimum needed to undertake the matching exercise including name, gender, NI number, bank account and passport number. All data will be stored electronically by the Cabinet Office or by another organisation under contract with the Cabinet Office. It will be held on a secure encrypted, password protected computer system maintained in a secure environment.

 

Both Trust staff and supplier data may be submitted to the National Fraud Initiative on a regular basis. The use of data is carried out with statutory authority under Part 6 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014. You can read further information about the national fraud initiative on the Gov UK website:
