Response to the Money and Pensions Service's publication of its call for input on pension dashboard data standards

The publication of the Call for Input represents another significant and critical step forwards for the pensions dashboards programme.

In response to the Money and Pensions Service's publication of its call for input on pension dashboard data standards, Darren Philp, Director of Policy at Smart Pension, said:

"Clear and comprehensive data standards are vital to underpin the dashboard architecture, so this consultation is a very welcome next step in developing the pensions dashboard. Agreeing these will allow schemes and providers to plan and develop their data strategies to be dashboard ready. It's taken a while to get to this phase, but we are hopeful that this consultation marks the beginning of an acceleration in the work of the dashboard project and gives much needed impetus to the project as a whole."
