Under Regulation 59 of the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations (LGPS) 2013 ERPF must consult with Scheme employers regarding any amendments that are made to the PAS. As revisions to the PAS have been made a consultation will now commence for a period of one month.

The consultation will close on 28 April 2023, please reply to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any comments or issues you wish to raise by this date.

The PAS has been updated following changes to the requirements of the Fund, how we communicate with our members and to more accurately reflect the costs of the additional work within the Fund caused by underperformance. The main changes within the strategy are:

  • The communication section has been updated to reflect the Fund’s new virtual contact offering for members and to confirm that in person meetings with members are now by
    appointment only.
  • The Fund’s duties and responsibilities have been updated to include compliance with the Pensions Dashboard.
  • The reference to Year End Submissions has been updated to reflect that this is only applicable for new employers who have a retrospective date of admission to the Fund as all
    employers are expected to be submitting Monthly Data Collection (MDC) files from 1 April 2023.
  • Some of the wording around payment of contributions has been slightly amended for greater clarity.
  • Revisions have been made to the existing additional administration charges to more accurately reflect the differences in actual administrations costs incurred by
    unsatisfactory performance relative to the size of the Scheme employer.
  • Further additional administration charges in the event of Scheme employer underperformance have been added to the PAS. The first is to reflect the additional work that occurs
    in a valuation year, when the full year's data is submitted late. A further two have been added to reflect the additional work required when services are outsourced to third-party contractors.
