Welcome to eNews – GAD’s regular newsletter. Early this year GAD actuaries presented at the Analytical Function conference. This annual event gathers together UK public sector analytical professionals, a community of which GAD staff are active members. Evie Calcutt summarises the event’s highlights, which focussed on how collaboration between different specialisms leads to more effective support for the development of government policy.

A recent example of GAD actuaries and analysts working closely with other experts is the support we have provided to UK Government Investments which has contributed to the successful sale of a new tranche of student loans. Andrew Jinks explains how this project has broken new ground.

GAD also contributes to the reporting on a significant part of the national finances: pensions for public service employees. Brian Allan examines the recent figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on UK pension provision which have captured media attention. He also considers the importance of other government figures from ONS, HM Treasury Whole of Government Accounts and the Office for Budget Responsibility in giving a more complete picture.
