Stamer To Speak About TPA & Other Plan Services Agreement Contracting Strategies For Managing Risks & Improving Effectiveness At 2010 Great Lakes Benefits Conference


Curran Tomko Tarski LLP Labor & Employment Practice Chair and Solutions Law Press Publisher Cynthia Marcotte Stamer will discuss “TPA & Other Plan Services Agreements- Managing Risks & Improving Effectiveness” At 2010 Great Lakes Benefits Conference to be held at the Wyndham Chicago Hotel on June 16-17, 2010. 

Growing regulatory, fiduciary and other compliance risks magnify the importance of the careful negotiation and documentation of third party administration and other plan-related service agreements for plans, plan sponsors, plan fiduciaries and service providers. Careful credentialing, negotiation and documentation of administrative and other services relationships plays an increasingly key role in the ability of plan sponsors, plans, fiduciaries and service providers to allocate and efficiently manage plan operations, meet compliance obligations, and allocate and manage fiduciary and other legal risks.

Ms. Stamer’s workshop will examine key concerns like how administrative services contract terms, plan terms, the parties of actions and other factors help determine which parties are exposed to fiduciary and other liabilities; who is responsible for fiduciary, administrative, reporting and disclosure, bonding, indemnification and other responsibilities; and terms and processes that may help parties manage their relationships and legal risks by exploring some of the common issues and concerns that need to be considered when entering into these contractual arrangements.

Co-hosted by the Internal Revenue Service and ASPPA, this two day Conference features presentations on regulatory, legislative, administrative and actuarial and other employee benefit issues lead by local, regional and national government representatives from the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Labor and nationally recognized employee benefit leaders from private industry.
