Item 5 - London Counter-Fraud Hub Update (L20/18)


The London Counter Fraud Hub, a London Ventures project, is nearing the conclusion of the pilot phase and is considered strongly likely to meet the standards required by the contract. The solution’s technical operation is proven to find more fraud than existing data matching solutions and delivers a much higher proportion of successful leads. The four pilot authorities, Ealing, Camden, Islington and Croydon, are about to embark upon the final round of user acceptance testing. It is anticipated that this will be completed and the pilot signed off by July 2018.

The attached report has been prepared by Ian O’Donnell, Executive Director of Corporate Resources at the LB Ealing in collaboration with CIPFA, who have been contracted to provide the service with partners BAE Systems, Mazars, and Moore Stephens. Ian O’Donnell and Rob Whiteman, Chief Executive of CIPFA, will attend to present the report.


Leaders’ Committee is asked consider and note the report.
