June 2023: RFQ for Technical Feasibility Assessment of Alternative AE Proposal

21 June 2023: The Pensions Council (An Chomhairle Pinsean) was established under section 26B of the Pensions Act, 1990. Its role is to advise the Minister for Social Protection on matters relating to policy on pensions. 

The Council has been asked by the Minister to analyse a proposal for a structural basis for the proposed Auto Enrolment (AE) system including the decumulation phase (the “proposed model”) and provide her with (amongst other considerations) an assessment of the technical feasibility of the proposed model, including the appropriateness of any underpinning assumptions employed and whether the modelling and evidence provided is sufficient to provide assurance of feasibility. This also includes an assessment of the structures and constraints proposed.

 In this regard, the Council is seeking proposals from interested parties to carry out this assessment of technical feasibility. A copy of the Request for Quotation can be found here, and also accessed on etenders.gov.ie CFT reference ID 1943597
