February 15, 2021

The State Universities Retirement System (SURS) is soliciting proposals from qualified firms interested in providing property and casualty insurance brokerage services to a public pension plan.

SURS intends to engage an insurance brokerage firm to assist us in obtaining all necessary business insurance coverage (with the exception of employee health and dental insurance) and to serve as our consultant with respect to risk management issues and other insurance related matters. The current insurance brokerage providers for SURS (Tave Risk Management and Mesirow Insurance Services) are welcome to submit new proposals.

SURS reserves the right to choose a broker for all, any part, or none of the services requested. It is anticipated that the firm that is chosen will provide insurance brokerage services to SURS for up to five (5) years.
