Hidden Treasure! It is always hard to find time for this particular task, but it can really pay off. A best practice of an employer is to request competitive proposals and bid with some frequency the services that are performed. This practice applies to consultants, advisors, actuaries, record-keepers, insurance vendors, attorneys, and auditors i.e. any periodic service. Again, this doesn't mean that you are obligated to change, but the reality is that there are advisors who are anxious for your business and willing to invest and lower their fees to get your business. And the quality of your service doesn't have to suffer. Unfortunately, this takes some time. Knowing the right vendors to approach takes research and experience. This is worthy work for TSP.
Okay, so you just signed up with this big-time consultant. You want to form a strong partnership and your engagement agreement set up some fee incentives or included a consultant's share in savings. Who checks that those goals have been achieved? Just as it is important to have project leaders on building projects, it is important to have managers who know the task to be completed and can measure an engagement's success. It is far too common for the consultant to complete a few interviews and then you never see them until a report is to be delivered. It is critical to lay out the expectations and arrange intermittent times to "check in". TSP can act as that interface or aid you in having an objective expert in that knows reasonable expectations. TSP can independently verify savings calculations.
