Proposed Tender Details
Insurance and Care NSW (icare) protects, insures and cares for the people, businesses and assets of NSW. It provides workers compensation insurance to more than 326,000 employers in NSW and their 3.2 million employees.
The NSW Self Insurance Corporation is a statutory body which was established by the NSW Self Insurance Corporation Act 2004. It operates NSW Government’s managed fund schemes and has the power to enter into service agreements or arrangements in relation to the operation of those schemes.
The largest scheme under Insurance for NSW is the Treasury Managed Fund (TMF) which provides NSW Government Agencies with asset and liability protection. This includes workers compensation protection for their employees.
icare intends to issue a Request for Tender (RFT) to the open market in order to procure claims management services for TMF workers compensation. This is critical to ensure that any new and existing claims will be managed in accordance with legislation and customer needs.
Agency representatives will be involved in the RFT process and the selection of a Claims Manager(s). icare is seeking a Claims Manager(s) that will uphold icare’s values and act as an extension of icare. icare intends to contract with a Claims Manager(s) that has demonstrated capability in managing NSW workers compensation claims and/or in providing claims management services to government agencies.
The number of Claims Manager(s) to be appointed will, in part, be determined by the number and quality of responses received.
