National Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Frameworks appoint Capita
Capita Employee Benefits today announces it has been appointed to the National LGPS Procurement Framework for both third party pension administration and pension administration support services.
Established by the LGPS, for the LGPS, and developed by Norfolk County Council in partnership with several LGPS funds, the framework has been designed primarily to support Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) funds but can also be used by all public sector pension schemes.
Stuart Heatley, Director at Capita Employee Benefits, said:
We are delighted to be appointed to this National LGPS Framework. Our appointment demonstrates the broad range of solutions we can offer local government clients – including bespoke or off-the-shelf software, full outsourced scheme administration and all supporting services in between including GMP reconciliations, data validation and tracing services. The National LGPS Frameworks are hugely beneficial to local government as they help make the process of selecting a supplier simpler, quicker and more cost effective.
The National LGPS Frameworks make it easier for funds to explore new partnerships and allow for a more competitive market, ensuring suppliers deliver value added services. They help procurement teams approach tender exercises with greater certainty, confident that new partners meet strict criteria and that change programmes can be implemented quicker.
