FROM:                       Eva Bark, Executive Director of Human Resources

SUBJECT:                      PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH LOCKTON DUNNING BENEFITS FOR SELF-FUNDING CONSULTING SERVICES

BACKGROUND AND FINDINGS:

Last year, staff utilized the Request for Qualification (RFQ) process to select a qualified, innovated consultant to provide effective services in transitioning to a self-insured employee health insurance platform. The City of Killeen accepted a contract with Lockton Dunning Benefits. The contract is effective August 1, 2020 for fourteen (14) months. 

This year, as we transition into self-insured healthcare, staff is requesting approval to extend the contract with Lockton Dunning Benefits for FY 2022 since Lockton has been a great partner in assisting with the transition to self-insured.   

In spring of FY 2022, after this transition year, staff will issue a Request for Qualifications again to identify and select a qualified benefits consultant.
