SAS UK comment on bogus claims

I’m heartened by today’s announcement of a new initiative to tackle the vast sums of money lost to fraud in the UK. However the DWP estimates that error accounts for double the losses caused by fraud. With every penny lost to fraud and error being lost to front line services, one thing is clear: battling this widespread waste has to be a top priority.

The vast figures involved are less surprising when you consider that 25% of civil service respondents to a recent survey said that ‘promptness’ rather than ‘accuracy’ was the most important factor when allocating public funds. Insightful understanding of an individual is only possible if their records are cross-checked and integrated, ensuring inconsistent claims are stopped before they pollute the wider government network.
