26.1 The Committee considered its work programme.
26.2 The Committee discussed the benefits of reducing the number of items on future agendas, particularly where they relate to areas of focus of the Pension Board, such as governance and employer engagement; or where they are being presented to the Committee ‘to note’ and could instead be circulated by email for information. The Committee was also in favour of using the call-over function for reports that require agreement but are not controversial, for example, policy documents that regulations require a new version is agreed every three years or when changes are made to it. This would enable the Committee to focus its time on more complex or controversial issues.
26.3 The Committee agreed to:
1) agree its work programme; and
2) agree to let officers advise which reports currently listed as standing items should be considered less often by the Committee in future.
