Key Information

Notice Type:Sole Economically Feasible Source
Notice Stage:
Hearing Notice of Decision Upheld

Notice Expiration Date:11/01/2017
Sole Source Only Justification:CMS Bureau of Benefits continues to transition to the MyBenefits on-line platform for health and welfare benefits administration to administer four insurance programs for State Employee Group Insurance Program (SEGIP), College Insurance Program (CIP), Teachers’ Retirement Insurance Program (TRIP) and the Local Government Health Plan (LGHP) for local units throughout the State of Illinois. This solution requires interaction between existing Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) databases, the MyBenefits vendor’s database and payroll systems, dozens of State of Illinois agencies, universities and retirement systems, twenty-three payroll systems and more than a dozen insurance carriers, affecting close to 450,000 covered lives.

Due to the complexity of the programs offered and required interactions, it is necessary to utilize a subject matter expert that has managed other complex benefits management implementations, as well as ongoing project management. CMS Bureau of Benefits is experienced in managing the day-to-day operations of the administration of the State’s benefits, but not experienced in implementation and management of a third-party Custom Benefit Solution administration vendor. Deloitte Consulting has intimate knowledge of bureau operations and systems to address the inevitable issues that continue to come up during implementation and use of another consultant would not be economically feasible at this time.
