Meeting of the Joint Expert Panel: 1 August 2019

The Panel considered updates on the 2018 valuation and a rule change relating to the conditions by which a scheme employer could leave the scheme. In addition the Panel reviewed the latest round of structured interviews with stakeholders.

This meeting received an initial top line report from Ignition House on the findings from focus groups with Scheme members. The final report will be considered at the Panel’s next meeting.

This project has facilitated a wider consideration of the views of Scheme members.

The Panel reviewed the structure of contribution rates in other Schemes with an interest in HE.

The Panel has also received access to a further range of papers from the Trustee and extends their thanks to the trustee for their assistance in understanding better the decisions taken so far.
