SVSPS Employer Committee
Established in April 2011, an Employer Consultative Group (ECG) was set up to involve participating employers in the operation and future running of the Scheme after the SVSPS Pensions Committee disbanded. From 1 October 2017 the ECG is known as the Employer Committee (EC).
The EC has four main functions: Scheme Funding, Investment Strategy, Scheme stewardship and communicating with employers.
The EC includes seven members nominated and elected by participating employers. In addition to the elected members, the ECG has the power to co-opt up to three additional members to fill skills gaps. Co-opted members do not have voting rights.
