Punter Southall Administration Limited (PSAL) has taken over the administration of the Atkins Pension Plan.
PSAL, the independent pensions administration part of Punter Southall Group has worked on the transition for the last six months.
The plan, which has 30,000 members including 18,000 defined contribution (DC) members, outsourced for the first time in February 2013. PSAL won the business in September 2015 from the previous provider Aon.
Atkins head of pensions and benefits Stella Chaplin said: "It was imperative our transition was managed quickly and easily to ensure the administration hit the ground running and that the functionality of the web was available at go-live."
This website functionality covers several aspects. For DC members this includes access to member dates, online updates for nomination forms, links to the scheme fund providers, full online switching and re-direction processes.
Defined benefit (DB) members would have access to data, and appropriate DB calculations. These will be released on line in the coming months.
