With increasing regulatory scrutiny in the LGPS and the complexity of the scheme’s rules, it’s important that administering authorities ensure appropriate service standards are maintained. We understand the challenges you face are here to support you in delivering a high quality, yet cost effective service to your scheme members and employers. We have a dedicated Governance, Administration and Projects (GAP) team focused on providing specialist support to LGPS funds.
Maximising value on behalf of your stakeholders
Our services can be tailored to find the right balance of support that works for you. Whatever your precise needs are, we will work you to design a strategy which maximises value on behalf of your stakeholders and ensures your fund is in the best of health. We have extensive experience in supporting administering authorities and assisting them to put fully functioning and effective governance arrangements in place.
Assisting funds to be more efficient
Good administration starts by setting clear objectives and processes to achieve them. As the LGPS becomes more complex, with greater data challenges and scrutiny, we’re assisting funds to be more efficient through process redesign and use of technology.
Providing a flexible project management capability
Our team of project management experts have experience in helping funds manage change across pensions administration, investment, IT and payroll. We can help you navigate changes to your Fund by providing a flexible project management capability, which can be tailored to your fund’s needs, allowing you to focus your resources on business as usual and maintain the level of service your members demand.
Our online platform is designed to support the training needs of Pension Committees, Pension Boards and Fund Officers, and will supplement training plans for all LGPS funds.
In May 2018, we were asked to look at the feasibility of White Horse consolidating all their academies into one LGPS fund.
Through good governance and effective decision making, the consolidation was fully achieved on 1 November 2019. White Horse Federation now have the benefit of reduced pensions related administration and better representation in funding related matters.
Thank you for setting up our replacement LGPS website. You and your colleagues Andrew and Ross have done an excellent job very speedily. The set-up process for our LGPS website was straightforward. The template we were required to complete was comprehensive making it easy for previous website managers to provide the information you required. The way you liaised with me and our old website managers inspires confidence that you will continue to do an excellent job. We are pleased with the site and thankful for your support.
