London Counter Fraud Hub

The London Counter Fraud Hub, which is managed by CIPFA, is a counter fraud service which supplies data analytics, investigations and recoveries service for the 32 London local authorities & the City of London Corporation. CIPFA recognises that fraud and corruption do not respect either geographical or fraud type boundaries and we aim to reduce the impact that fraud and corruption has on the taxpayer.

Unlike traditional data matching hubs, this is an end-to-end service providing expert advice and operational support around sophisticated analytics.

Staffed by qualified counter fraud specialists, CIPFA’s overarching objective for the service we provide as the London Counter Fraud Hub is to increase fraud and corruption detection, and improve fraud prevention, share common risks across London, minimise losses and maximise recovery, so that fraud and corruption does not pay.

A variety of data sources (including data from third parties and the 32 London local authorities and the City of London Corporation) are entered into the analytics part of the Hub through a secure transfer. Using pioneering technology, the Hub will analyse the data to identify frauds against the 32 London local authorities and the City of London Corporation. To help support the 32 London local authorities and the City of London Corporation, the London Counter Fraud Hub offers investigative capabilities, counter fraud tools, support and services to recover monies lost to fraud and corruption.
