Tackling Fraud in Government with Data Analytics
The aim of this paper is to start a conversation with citizens, academia, industry, and across Government on the use of data and analytics to counter fraud.
To help drive this conversation this paper is divided into three sections:
1. Using data to counter fraud
An insight into the nature of counter fraud in Government and into the work being done in the Cabinet Office and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport to advance the use of data and data sharing as part of the Government’s counter fraud strategy.
2. Some key challenges to making even more progress
A summarisation of the key challenges identified by Government, industry, and academia in making more use of data for counter fraud. These are the issues we seeking your input and insights on.
3. Your voice
Where we ask for your input on our key challenges; how could Government approach these issues and is there anything else we should be concerned about based on experiences in your own industries?
In the rest of the document you will find the verbatim contributions from the public and private stakeholders – Government departments, academia, and industry – which are the source of the challenges identified in section 2.
