Alternatives for Administering the Wisconsin Retirement System: Current Policy versus Total Retirement Outsourcing

This analysis explores the potential costs and benefits of outsourcing the administrative and investment services of the Wisconsin Retirement System. The authors compare two policy alternatives: the current policy, characterized by the partial outsourcing of WRS services, and an option that would contract out all WRS investment and benefits administration functions to a single private firm. They conclude that the current policy is the most desirable alternative. Presentation slides
