Security Check and fraud database

Jobs require Security Check security clearance as a condition of employment. If you are successful at interview, you will be asked to complete a security questionnaire. Employment references will also be obtained. Before a formal offer of appointment can be made this will include checking applicant details against the Cabinet Office Internal Fraud Database (IFD) – see section below.

Cabinet Office Internal Fraud Database (IFD) check

From January 2018, Wilton Park started providing the Cabinet Office with information about employees who have been dismissed for fraud or dishonesty offences. This information is the individual’s name, date of birth, national insurance number and a general description of the relevant misconduct. This also applies to employees who resign or otherwise leave but who, because of an adverse decision by the investigation panel, or decision maker, would have been dismissed for fraud or dishonesty had they continued in employment.

The Cabinet Office input this information onto a database – the Internal Fraud Database (IFD) – and retain it for a period of five years from the date of dismissal (or the date employment ended). It shares with Wilton Park the name, date of birth and national insurance numbers of the staff included on the IFD. Where an applicant is successful in interview, Wilton Park will, as part of its pre-employment screening, check applicant details against the information received from the Cabinet Office. Any applicant who is included in the IFD will be refused employment.
