Procurement Policy Note 05/14: staff transfers and pensions

The Fair Deal policy sets out how pensions are affected when staff transfer from central government to independent contractors delivering public services.



The Fair Deal policy allows newly transferring staff continued access to a public service pension scheme. It replaces the previous policy which required employers to provide transferring staff access to a broadly comparable pension scheme and the option of a transfer of their accrued pension rights.
