Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board considering record-keeper contract with other services

The Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board, Washington, is looking for a service provider to assume record keeping and possibly other services, the board announced Thursday.

The board, which administers the $553.8 billion Thrift Savings Plan, has separate contracts for its record keeper, two call centers and a service bureau; officials are considering combining those into one contract.

The current record keeper, SAIC, is eligible to bid.

Spokeswoman Kim Weaver said the board is interested to see what services are available in the market, but has not decided on how many contracts to award.

"We want to hear from vendors what they can do," Ms. Weaver said in an email.

The solicitation is available at www.fbo.gov. Submissions are due July 30 by 1 p.m. EDT.

A timeline for a decision could not be learned by press time.
