WASHINGTON  (April 9, 2020) — The Interstate Insurance Product Regulation Commission (Insurance Compact) has released two separate and distinct Requests for Proposal (RFPs). The first is to engage a firm to conduct a corporate governance review. The second is to engage a firm to conduct a business assessment. These engagements are part of the implementation of the Insurance Compact Compass: Strategic Plan 2020 – 2022 adopted in December 2019.

The Insurance Compact is a multi-state public body which serves as an instrumentality of the Compacting States pursuant to enabling legislation to enact the Interstate Insurance Product Regulation Compact. Each Compacting State is an official member, represented by the Insurance Commissioner / Director / Superintendent, of the Insurance Compact. The purpose of the Insurance Compact is to develop uniform standards for covered insurance product lines, promptly review filed products and approve those product filings that satisfy applicable uniform standards on behalf of the members of the Insurance Compact. Today, 44 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have enacted the Insurance Compact and are referred to as the member states.

The Corporate Governance Review RFP seeks a consultant to perform an independent review of the Insurance Compact's governing documents, organizational structure, management, decision-making and reporting processes and recommend revisions or improvements to comply with best practices for comparable organizations and to enhance the Insurance Compact's effectiveness of the current structure, procedures, communications and opportunities for improvement.

The Business Assessment RFP seeks a consultant to perform an independent review of the business model of the Insurance Compact and recommend revisions or improvements to comply with best practices of comparable organizations and to enhance the Insurance Compact's effectiveness and sustainability over the next five to ten years to support and fulfill its statutory purposes and obligations to its member states.

The Insurance Compact envisions the assessments will be conducted at the same time and by separate firms but remains open to considering a proposal responding to both RFPs. Qualified firms must have demonstrated experience with similar types of engagements that they are asking to be considered for.

Additional information about these respective projects is contained in the respective RFP's scope of work. The RFPs, which include key dates, are available on the Insurance Compact's website at www.insurancecompact.org and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' website at www.naic.org (the Insurance Compact is affiliated with the NAIC).

For consideration, proposals must be submitted to the Insurance Compact via e-mail to iiprcproposals@insurancecompact.org by 5 pm Eastern on Monday, May 11, 2020.

The Insurance Compact enables state insurance regulators to develop uniform national standards for asset protection insurance products, such as life insurance, annuities, disability income and long-term care insurance. The Insurance Compact establishes a central filing point for these insurance products, enhancing the speed and efficiency of regulatory decisions and allowing companies to compete more effectively in the modern financial marketplace, while continuing to provide protection for consumers.
