DCLG have published two template documents to assist LGPS employers in the process of making an application to substitute an administering authority under Part 2 of Schedule 3 of the LGPS Regulations 2013.
The two documents have been uploaded to the Other Government Documents page on www.lgpsregs.org (under the sub-heading Other Documents) and consist of the following:
Application form – to be completed by the scheme employer containing the relevant details regarding the application. This form can be used by any scheme employer looking to make an application to substitute an administering authority for another.
Template Direction for College mergers – to be completed by the legal representative of the scheme employer(s) making the application. The legal representative should complete the gaps so that the completed version could be sent by DCLG to the applicant(s) to approve the application. This form can be used by Colleges who are merging and, as a consequence, wish to merge or move their LGPS memberships into another fund. Where a College is making an application to substitute an administering authority, the application form (above) must also be completed.
