UK - The Pension Protection Fund (PPF) has tendered for a consultant to work on the risk based levy to be applied to schemes from 2010 onwards.
A PPF spokesman said: "We have no monopoly on right answers on this one and will be consulting with the industry to figure out the best route to take."
The consultant would participate in developing a new levy formula applicable to UK pension funds.
The PPF said it expected to award the contract within the next financial year.
In November, the PPF announced more pension schemes could be made to pay the levy, after the funding level at which schemes are obliged to pay a risk-based levy was raised from 125% to 140%.
