ESR Reports
Introduction
ESR has two methods of providing Reports firstly via the Requests facility
various reports can be run Items 1 to 16 below contain relevant detail. Users
can also use Discoverer to provide various different repots as details in Items
17 to 24 below.
Users can also obtain details of the items reported on the various interfaces
by requesting the available reporting spreadsheets via the NHS Hub.
1. NHS Annual Pension List Report
The report has been designed to allow the user to audit the year to date
pension record for an assignment. It is particularly useful for using alongside
POL when a record has been rejected on the Year End interface but will also
help you check records in year.
As can be seen above there are two parameters:
•
Assignment – enter assignment number for required record
•
Date – This will default to today’s date, amend to relevant date e.g. 31MAR-2009 to display year end data.

7.
NHS Pensionable Pay Report
This report was designed to assist in determining TPP figures for Pension
Award or Estimate purposes.
This report will be used when employees are approaching retirement so a
figure of the Total Pensionable Pay can be forwarded to the Pensions Agency.
The report will provide a listing of the elements that have been used to
calculate the Total Pensionable Pay. This report will be applicable to nonpractitioner members only.
The TPP period usually covers a period of 365 paid days of pensionable
employment but in certain circumstances it may be less than 365 days. For
example, an employee may not be in employment for as long as 365 days.
Alternatively the Pensions Agency may request the TPP period to cover less
than 365 days.
Where there is a period of unauthorised unpaid absence or unpaid sick leave
the period over which pay for benefit purposes would normally be calculated
would need to be extended backwards into the previous period, for a period
equal to the unpaid leave. This will have the effect of making up the TPP
period to 365 paid days. This is commonly referred to as ‘stepping back’
The report can also be used to estimate the TPP for a period in the future.
When forecasting, the TPP will be calculated/projected using the basic salary
and any other recurring pensionable elements that form part of contractual
pay, e.g. shift allowance.
The Total Pensionable Pay figure (TPP) is usually the yearly pensionable pay
earned in the best of the last three years immediately before termination,
counting backwards in 365 paid days of pensionable employment.
Contributions will have been collected on it and benefits will eventually be
calculated on it. It is assumed that the pension’s officer will run the report
three times with the appropriate dates and then choose the best year.

Helpful hint – this report uses pensionable balances rather than pensioned so
if for some reason the assignment was not in the scheme for any period in the
selected dates the value would be wrong. Also check starting and end dates
of assignment as the report estimates pensionable values based on other
payments.

9. NHS Pensions Agency Inbound Interface Report
This report is an essential tool for Pensions Officers as it highlights potential
problems with Pension Records. As such it should be checked on a regular
basis at the beginning of each pay period. You will often find that items
reported on here are records that are on the Data Matching Reports available
from NHS Pensions and by correcting that data you will reduce the items on
this report.
The input parameters associated with this report are simply date from and

**** End of Report ****
Each error has to be considered on its own merit although a look at the
assignment usually gives you a clue. These items are trying to match on
Assignment Number and Pension Start Date.
On examination of the data it was found the above errors were caused by the
following;
i) Unable to update record in Pensions Interface custom table – In this
case the record was a Bank Record and the Pension Start Date on the
inbound was before the ESR record commenced
ii) Invalid Assignment Number – In this case this is a legacy payroll number
so the record has never been matched. Check your Data matching
spreadsheet and correct the outstanding error. Then ask NHS Pensions to
resend the inbound interface data.
Other cases of this had a correct Assignment Number and so presumably had
been passed across from ESR to NHS Pensions. This looks like a legacy
error from pre go live days. You need to check the record on POL as it is
possible an incorrect employee exists on your EA code. Discuss with Data
Management Team
iii) Pension Start Date is NULL – In this instance the assignment had been
terminated on ESR and there was no pension record on ESR. This record
needs to be closed down on POL it will be part of the data matching exercise.
iv) API Error: The HR object is invalid – In this case the Pension Start Date
is before the creation of the ESR Record. Again the data matching process
will identify these errors and they should be fixed using that process.
v) API Error: The primary key specified is invalid – In this case the
Pension Start date does not match the POL date. Again this needs
investigating as part of data matching.
vi) Pension NHS Element Entry can not be found for this Assignment –
the EA had deleted the Pension element but that cancellation had not been
passed across to NHS Pensions. This record needs to be deleted from
Pensions Systems. Again data matching will pick this up.
17
ESR - NHS Pensions Interface - ESR reports v1 0.doc
Created by JStevenson to Be reviewed September 2010
vii) API Error: DateTrack update not allowed for a record which started
today – In this case an incorrect Pen Override Date in the future is held on
the Pension NHS element. The system is saying it cannot update a record
that has not commenced. Amend the Pen Start Date on ESR collect arrears
and correct record on POL.

The spreadsheets are produced monthly over the first weekend of each month
and contain data that was passed on the interface for the previous month. An
e-mail notification advising the availability of the report is generated by the
new process. Trusts are asked to provide an appropriate e-mail account to
have the notifications delivered to.
The new report is produced by a process running on the NHS Interface Hub
and the new reports will reside on the NHS Hub. In order to safeguard the
security of the data on the report, users are provided with a secure web based
mechanism to access the reports via the NHS Hub. Where a Payroll
Department is responsible for more than one VPD, a single log on is provided
that enables access to all the reports for the associated VPD’s.
To obtain the log on credentials for your trust, users are requested to log an
SR on the ESR Helpdesk using the following text in the SR Summary
replacing the “nnn” with the relevant VPD’s that the caller is responsible for :“Please refer this call to the ESRNHSINT queue. Please enable the NHS
Interface Hub based Web Access to the Monthly Pension Interface Report for
VPD(s) nnn (nnn, nnn and nnn). Please send the e-mail alerts to:
example.address@yourtrust.nhs.net”.
The log on credentials will be added to the SR as will a copy of the User
Guide which describes the log on process and the access mechanism.
Reports will be kept available for a period of 40 days. In order for a user to
have a full history, users are encouraged to download and keep a copy on a
secure local directory.
