Pre-Qualified Pool of Audit Service Providers RFQQ #15-01
The WSIB is issuing a Request for Qualifications and Quotations (RFQQ) and awarding contracts to create a pre-qualified pool (Pool) of independent audit service providers (contractors) to meet WSIB's current and future assurance service needs, on an as-needed project basis. Through these relationships, the goal is for the WSIB to have timely access to highly-qualified audit service teams, in order to provide adequate assurance to the Board's stakeholders regarding the WSIB's financial reporting, compliance and accountability initiatives, and information technology.

The role of the contractors will be to cooperatively assist WSIB Internal Audit staff, operating under the direction of the Audit Committee, with independent audit or other assurance activities relating to the Board's operations as they pertain to financial reporting, accountability and compliance, as well as information technology.

The WSIB is accepting responses to establish a separate Pool for each of the following categories of service:

A1 Accountability and Compliance Audit Services:

The WSIB issues separate statements for the following funds: Retirement Funds, Labor and Industries Funds, Permanent Funds, Other Funds, Guaranteed Education Tuition Fund, and Developmental Disabilities Endowment Trust Fund.

The Washington State Investment Board seeks to contract with researchers to create a pre-qualified pool of researchers from various academic disciplines to provide advisory research and consulting on an as-needed project basis. In addition to providing ad-hoc research, the WSIB is also interested in establishing a strategic research advisory council made up of a combination of academics from various disciplines to provide ongoing advice to the WSIB on the establishment and development of the research program.

Advise the WSIB’s research director, management team, and the Board on the development of the research program
Act as a peer to review research methods and advise on conclusions
Meet with WSIB staff and review our analysis several times a year
Help the WSIB to "think outside the box"
