The Florida Legislature has directed the Office of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability to conduct a special review which will explore the feasibility of privatizing Florida’s Division of Retirement. The Division of Retirement is responsible for administering Florida’s statewide retirement system and providing oversight of retirement plans administered by local government. The Division’s services include distributing benefit payments to retirees and beneficiaries, determining eligibility for benefits, enrolling members, maintaining retirement records, counseling members on their rights and benefits, and processing requests for benefit estimates.

As part of this review, our office is examining other states’ efforts in privatizing or outsourcing the administration of state retirement systems. We would appreciate the assistance in identifying 1) states that have outsourced or attempted to outsource some or all of their retirement benefits administration, and 2) private contractors who can provide some or all of these services.

Any information, such as contact names and phone numbers or recent research efforts in this area, would be greatly appreciated.
