Submission deadline passed.
The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit offers from qualified insurance brokers to provide brokerage and consulting services for the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission’s Employee Benefits program. Such services will include, but not be limited to: (1) reviewing and advising on appropriate insurance coverage; (2) marketing and placement of insurance; (3) reviewing vendor contracts and evidence of coverage; (4) coordinating with other PSMFC benefits providers; (5) acting as a liaison and an advocate for PSMFC with insurance companies; and (6) developing and producing communications materials.
PSMFC’s employee benefits philosophy is to address employee wellness and preventative medicine. As such, the selected broker must be able to identify insurance providers who adhere to this philosophy and provide services accordingly.
Current PSMFC benefits include a self-funded health plan (medical, dental, vision, and prescription coverage administered by Principle financial); group life, AD&D and Long Term Disability insurance administered by Lincoln Financial; a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) for medical and family care expenses administered by Manley Services; a Post Employment Health Plan (PEHP); and an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through Cascade Centers. At this time, PSMFC would prefer to continue to offer the same level of benefits for its employees.
