A Trusted Partner Working for You

We Understand the Public Sector and the Benefit Solutions You Need

Partnerships are an important part of how we do business in the government and educator markets. By aligning with organizations dedicated to helping cities and their employees, we can better understand the needs of the public sector and help provide solutions to many of their issues. Our key relationships include:

  • International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR) represents the interests of more than 5,000 human resource professionals at the federal, state and local levels of government. IPMA-HR named us its preferred provider of voluntary benefit solutions.   
  • Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) is a leading source of public financial management expertise and is highly regarded for its research and reporting on the latest trends, methodologies and solutions in government management. We work with GFOA to research innovative and effective strategies local governments can use to contain costs while managing the quality of employee benefits.
  • National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) serves more than 50,000 government organizations nationwide by helping to facilitate the competitive bidding process on behalf of its members. The organization awarded Colonial Life a contract for voluntary benefits that NJPA members can leverage to fulfill their bidding requirements, provided all statutory requirements and obligations are satisfied.
  • National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) offers a library of thousands of bid-related documents, training programs and seminars to help public sector entities better manage the procurement process. We enhanced their resource collection with a sample RFP you can model and questionnaire you can use when qualifying your voluntary benefits provider.
  • Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) provides programs and services promoting the highest standards of school business management. We partner with ASBO on events that further their mission of professional growth and the effective use of educational resources.
