IPSA Publishes Corporate Plan and Scheme of MPs’ Staffing and Business Costs
Date published: March 31, 2021
The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority today published a new Corporate Plan for 2021 to 2024. A new Scheme of MPs’ Staffing and Business Costs takes effect from tomorrow with some minor adjustments to the rules.
IPSA’s Chief Executive, Ian Todd, said:
“We have created a three-year strategy that will transform IPSA to become a high performing, modern regulator. IPSA’s objective is to enable MPs to focus on what really matters by providing an exemplary, seamless regulatory service. We want to ensure effective regulation delivered primarily by supporting MPs and their staff to achieve compliance at first instance. That is the focus of our new Corporate Plan, running for the rest of this parliament.
“We remain committed to our purpose as we enter this next phase and have confidence in our dedicated and energetic team to deliver our future.”

Notes to Editors:
To regulate MPs’ business costs and expenses
To determine MPs’ pay and pension arrangements
To provide financial support to MPs in carrying out their parliamentary functions.
IPSA is independent of Parliament and the Government. This allows us to take decisions about the rules on business costs and expenses and on MPs’ pay ourselves, without interference.
Every two months we publish around 25,000 claims for costs and expenses by MPs and their staff. Once a year we publish aggregate data for MPs’ spending and other aspects of their activity.
