The policy and research team attend numerous formal, and informal, government consultation forums to ensure the views of CIPP members, payroll practitioners and their employers are represented at the earliest stages of policy design.

The team uses their knowledge of pensions and payroll legislation to maintain and update the policy news journal, which contains relevant CIPP news items with links to further information and is indexed and categorised for easy reference.

Policy Think Tanks

The policy and research team were ­formally established in 1999 with a remit to provide members of the CIPP with a voice at government consultation forums influencing legislation as well as raising awareness of the role that payroll, pensions and reward play in the business arena. The team strive to serve the needs of the CIPP membership by acting as a conduit via which concerns can be heard and ­addressed.

The CIPP Think Tanks look to take steps to ensure that the wealth of knowledge and experience that is held by full and fellow members can be harnessed to the full.
