Each Pension Fund in the LGPS is required to establish a Pensions Board. The Board is responsible for assisting the Scheme Manager (Dumfries and Galloway Council) in relation to compliance with Scheme regulations and the requirements of the Pensions Regulator.
Membership of the Board consists of equal numbers of trade union representatives and employer representatives.
The Local Government Pension Scheme (Scotland) Advisory Board provides advice on the desirability of changes to scheme design and the implication of other policy issues.
