Dear Colleagues,

As you will be aware the Joint Expert Panel (JEP) on pensions published its report on the 2017 USS valuation last month. Following consultation with colleagues across College we submitted our response to UUK’s consultation on the JEP recommendations today. Access Imperial's response to the UUK consultation [pdf].

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to thoughtful and constructive conversations over the past few weeks – either in person or through Faculty representatives. Our response was discussed and agreed by Provost’s Board last week and we have also made it public through our USS webpages.

We shall continue to seek transparency from all parties involved in the discussions to resolve the issues surrounding the USS pension funds and to press for decisions based on evidence that is available to everyone. 

Best wishes,

Professor Alice P. Gast, President

Professor Ian Walmsley, Provost

Imperial College London
