Committee (or equivalent) membership

Governance chart

LGPS funds may be overseen by a Committee, Pensions Panel, or other similar Board arrangement. These Committees are delegated the responsibility to monitor and manage the running and administration of the fund.

The level of detail and comprehensiveness of information on committee membership and meeting attendance differs in the annual report and accounts. For example, some funds reported the committee membership as at May 2013, while others reported all appointments and resignations over the accounting period. However, as an estimate, the average number of members sitting on Pension Committees (or equivalent) was about 10. The above chart shows the distribution around 10, with most funds' committee membership falling in a range of between 5 and 15.
