Has the government just re-invented privatisation and outsourcing?

The government launched its first central government mutual today with the kick-off of MYCSP.

My Civil Service Pension (MYCSP), which launched today, has taken the civil service pension administration and split the ownership between the government (35%), the staff (25%) and a business service provider (40%). The private company is pension and HR service provider Equiniti.

The idea is that the private sector partner will make the service as efficient as possible and take away costs from the government, the workers will work much harder because they own it and the government will be able to cut taxes as a result. They call it the John Lewis model because it is based on the retailer’s successful use of this type of regime.

As this is something new I am interested in getting people’s views on it. Please fill in the questionnaire below if you want to give your views anonymously.

Here are some more articles I wrote about MYCSP:
