New actuary for Bedfordshire Pension Fund

Each Local Government Pension Scheme fund appoints an actuary to undertake valuations of the fund and manage ongoing monitoring of funding levels and employer costs.  The actuarial contract has a significant role in the governance of Bedfordshire Pension Fund. 

The renewal of actuarial contracts is undertaken in line with EU Procurement Directives.   Public sector procurement is subject to a legal framework which encourages free and open competition and value for money, with an emphasis on key principles such as equality of treatment and transparency.   Having recently carried out the procurement process, Bedfordshire Pension Fund has appointed Barnett Waddingham as the fund’s actuary, effective from  1st September 2018.

The Fund would like to thank its outgoing actuary, Hymans Robertson, for all its valued work over the past 15 years.
