Each year the Regulator runs a public service governance and administration survey, which scheme managers are invited to complete in conjunction with their Local Pension Board. Although the survey is not mandatory, participation is strongly encouraged by both TPR and the Scheme Advisory Board, so that improvements in running the FPS can be monitored and evidenced.

TPR do not take any regulatory action based on survey responses, but overall trends may inform their engagement activity with schemes.

The library below contains the summary document and full research report for each year that the survey has taken place.
