It's been a pretty busy week at @USSbriefs HQ.

We published @BenPatrickWill's fantastic brief on what's coming down the chute in terms of transformation of HE into performance data. An essential read – & glorious @acupunctureUSS design #USSbriefs40 medium.com/ussbriefs/numb… 1/
We published Richard Farndale's (in consultation with @CambridgeUCU Exec) excellent set of questions for the #JEP in our @OpenUPP2018 series #USSbriefs41 medium.com/ussbriefs/cruc… 2/
We published @carlomorelliUCU's excellent submission to #JEP (in our @OpenUPP2018 series) on the wider context & political economyof EU legislation – & discount rates – around pensions #USSbriefs42 medium.com/ussbriefs/euro… 3/
We've published @deepa_driver's (member of @USSbriefs) cracking #JEP submission in which she takes on the persistent approval of employer underpayments from 1999–2008 by the #USS Trustee ... 4/ #USSbriefs43 medium.com/ussbriefs/a-br…
& argues that "A long-standing, flawed, & incomplete narrative about the surpluses & deficits in [USS] has been strategically employed to persuade scheme members to accept the erosion, & ultimately the elimination" of DB pension provision #USSbriefs43 medium.com/ussbriefs/a-br… 5/
This brief by @deepa_driver – along with its powerful call to action – is also being sent to #USS, @UniversitiesUK & @TPRgovuk #USSbriefs43 medium.com/ussbriefs/a-br… 6/
And a bunch of us (members & friends) of @USSbriefs have submitted a #manifesto to the #JEP (also published in our @OpenUPP2018 series) on the #USS valuation – both present & future #USSbriefs44 medium.com/ussbriefs/a-ma… 7/ First page of our manifesto (available via link in tweet)2nd page of brief3rd page of brief4th page of brief
We trust we're giving the #JEP, #USS, @UniversitiesUK & @TPRgovuk quite a bit to think about in the coming weeks.

Bon weekend.
