For staff


University members can now access a recording of the USS open meeting held on 13 July.

On Friday 13 July, an open meeting held at the Jean Thomas Lecture Theatre in the Sanger Building, Department of Biochemistry, gave staff the chance to hear the latest in the USS pension discussion.

Professor Richard Farndale, UCU pensions representative at the University, and Anthony Odgers, the University’s Chief Financial Officer, both spoke about the Joint Expert Panel (JEP). The JEP was established to review the 2017 valuation and will agree key principles to underpin the future joint approach of UUK and UCU to the valuation of the USS fund. Anthony Odgers also provided an indicative timeline of how the JEP and cost-sharing initiatives will run concurrently to deliver outcomes by the next valuation period.

The presentations were followed by a lively Q&A session with staff members attending the event.

The meeting was filmed, and the full video is available to view here. Please note: Raven login is required to view the video. The login button is in the top right corner of the screen.
