The Interstate Insurance Compact's annual budget process is open and transparent with participation from Compact Members and all interested parties, including the Legislative Committee and the Industry and Consumer Advisory Committees. The Insurance Compact's Executive Director is charged with drafting an annual proposed budget for review by the Compact membership. Throughout the development of the budget, there are numerous and rigorous reviews conducted by the Insurance Compact Office in consultation with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Finance Department which provides accounting and financial services under the Insurance Compact - NAIC Services Agreement. The Compact Officers and Finance Committee review and agree upon a final proposed budget which is then recommended to the Management Committee for a public comment period. During this public comment period, all interested parties may review and submit comments regarding the proposed Insurance Compact Annual Budget. The final Budget is then the subject of a majority vote by both the Management Committee and the full Commission before it is accepted and implemented by the Compact Office.
