National Fraud Initiative

The Council will process personal data for the National Fraud Initiative on 30 September.

This is to participate in a national data matching exercise that helps prevent and detect fraud and other crime. This information will be shared with Audit Scotland to allow a data matching exercise to be completed.

Data matching involves comparing computer records held by one organisation against other computer records held by the same or another organisation. Computerised data matching allows potential fraudulent claims and payments to be identified. 

We set out how we will use and share your personal information in our general privacy notice

For more information on Audit Scotland’s legal powers and the reason why it matches particular information, see their privacy notice.
