Plannera adheres to strong governance practices and processes and, by agreement, follows the governance processes of the plans it administers.
Public Employees Pension Plan (PEPP) Governance
As part of the assessment process the Public Employees Pension Board (PEPB) completes a self-assessment questionnaire.
The PEPB reviews processes to assess its governance practices. This is completed through the PEPP Governance Self-Assessment Questionnaire.
A person with the best knowledge of the answer each question completes the questionnaire. The Chairperson then approves it after consultation with the Board.
Good governance is defined as being accountable, transparent and responsive.
Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest Procedures
The PEPB has adopted a code of conduct and conflict of interest procedures. This guides the Board in:
- understanding its principles and values;
- determining appropriate business practices and behaviour;
- maintaining independence;
- upholding integrity necessary to fulfill their obligations to the members of the Plan; and
- completing an annual review.
Strategic Business Plan
The strategic business plan is part of the PEPB's comprehensive governance process. It includes:
- risk assessment;
- aligns with the Plan's vision and mission;
- investment, service, cost-effectiveness, stewardship and engagement goals; and
- internal and external factors.
Plannera responds to all inquiries related to PEPP. If a complaint is unresolved, the Public Employees Pension Board may hear the complaint.
