Call for proposals - Actions related to the development of pension modelling and for support for mutual learning in national pension reform processes VP/2012/010 Closed!

Objectives

This call for proposals aims to support Member State authorities in developing their capacity for monitoring and modelling trends in their pension systems and for designing and modelling reforms aimed at strengthening the adequacy, sustainability and safety of pension systems. The call covers three strands of work:

  1. Building administrative datasets and models
  2. National debates and preparatory work on reforms of public pension schemes
  3. Developing policies to enhance the contribution of complementary savings to adequate pensions

Actions

Building administrative datasets and models

  • The development of administrative datasets (ideally on an internationally comparable basis) of career and earning patterns of workers of different profiles (e.g. low wage earners, those with atypical careers, etc.) and of pension and benefit entitlements and other relevant data.
  • The development of models to provide a policy-making and analysis tool for Governments that simulates the effects of individual behaviour on pension outcomes and the effects of pension reforms on the future adequacy and sustainability of pensions and on the dispersion of individual situations.

National debates and preparatory work on reforms of public pension schemes

The main purpose of the support will be to facilitate access to experience and expertise from other countries and international organisations (e.g. in the form of OECD-led country reviews).

Developing policies to enhance the contribution of complementary savings to adequate pensions

The main purpose of the support will be to facilitate access to experience and expertise from other countries and international organisations with relevant experience.
