Request for Proposals; Group Life Insurance

[29 Pa.B. 4756]

   The Office of Administration is requesting proposals to provide group life insurance coverage to Commonwealth employes. The selected carrier will provide group life insurance coverage in a cost-effective, consistent and efficient manner. The bidder will be expected to assume administrative tasks currently performed by the Commonwealth. Those duties are specified in the RFP and the accompanying documents. The scope of coverage includes the Commonwealth's basic group life insurance program covering approximately 101,000 employes, and four separate plans sponsored by certain Commonwealth agencies to supplement the basic coverage. The Commonwealth's current basic group life insurance program pays a benefit of one times pay (rounded to the nearest $1,000) to a maximum of $40,000. The coverage also includes an additional $10,000 work-related accidental death benefit. Benefits for active employes are reduced at ages 70 and 75. Benefits for disabled employes continue for life, as long as the individual continues to meet the definition of disability. Supplemental life benefits are provided to specified Commonwealth agencies under separate policies which are offset by benefits payable under basic life.

   The Office of Administration reserves the right to reject any and all proposals or to negotiate separately with any organization that submits a proposal. The Office of Administration will not be liable for any cost incurred by an organization prior to issuance of a contract. Seven copies of a bidder's proposal must arrive at the following location on or before 3 p.m., October 1, 1999: T. Frances Grimm, Group Life Insurance Coordinator, Employee Benefits Division, Office of Administration, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 402 D, Finance Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120.

   Copies of the RFP may be obtained by writing to the previous address or by calling T. Frances Grimm at (717) 705-5693.
