Minutes

(UPDATE: From the 27 July 2015, the pension Fund is now putting its minutes and agendas online. Please find the latest ones here)

 

It has been difficult to get information released about the East Sussex County Council Pension Fund Investment Panel.  One Freedom of Information request for the minutes in 2006 resulted in only heavily censored versions of them being released (see below). One request to attend the meetings of the Panel resulted in a letter from Sean Nolan, that stated: “the open session of the meeting usually only lasts for approximately 5 minutes at the start.” Later, in 2008, after reading ‘Your Right to Know – New Edition: A Citizen’s Guide to the Freedom of Information Act’ by Heather Brooke a stronger Freedom of Information request was sent asking for all of the minutes since the Pension Fund began. This was mostly successful and it is the first time they have been released to the public. Some information has not been disclosed as the letter from the FOI officer shows, however the majority of it has been released to the public.

Because the ESCC Pension Fund only released paper copies of the minutes, as stated in their correspondence in April 2008, they have been scanned in and uploaded here. Some information has not been disclosed as this letter from the FOI officer shows, however the majority of it has been released to the public.
