46.1         The Committee received a presentation from Jeremy Frost, Intelligence Manager for the National Anti-fraud Network (NAFN) in relation to: the work of the organisation; the services it provided, the benefits for the Council and some example cases.


46.2         In discussion relating to the Department of Work & Pensions single fraud investigation service being introduced alongside welfare reform changes it was explained that this was not necessarily direct competition for the NAFN, but there was concern in some local authorities and from the Local Government Association (LGA) about how this was being implemented, and the potential to take away from the work the network already undertook.
