The National Fraud Initiative (NFI) is a sophisticated data matching exercise that matches data within and between public and private sector bodies to prevent and detect fraud. It has been run every two years since 1996 and to date has been used within the Public Sector to identify fraud and overpayments totalling over £1.3 billion.

We are able to offer access to the intelligence and insight collected as part of the NFI to both public and private sector organisations.
