ACCESS governance arrangements

The eleven ACCESS participating Funds are each administering authorities within the Local Government Pension Scheme, as set out in the Local Government Pension Scheme regulations 2013.

Each authority administers, maintains and invests their own respective funds within the LGPS in accordance with these regulations and the LGPS investment Regulations.

The ACCESS authorities have signed an Inter Authority Agreement which sets out how they will work together.

The Inter Authority Agreement (Schedule 1) confirms the ACCESS governing principles.

Administering Authority Section 101 Committees (‘Pensions Committees’) are represented at the Joint Committee.
