The DCIIA Investment Policy & Design Committee provides a forum to:

  • Encourage and promote research, dialogue, education, thought leadership and best practices related to the design and implementation of effective defined contribution plan investment options, with a special focus on qualified default investment alternatives (QDIAs)
  • Develop practical “how-to” materials for plan sponsors
  • Educate public policy makers on investment-related matters
  • Create materials fostering the adoption of best practices by plan sponsors
  • Serve as a clearinghouse for case studies on implementing innovative solutions
  • Promote the cost-effectiveness and benefits of flexibility of institutional investment approaches often found in defined benefit plans
  • Provide technical support on investment issues for other DCIIA committees, especially in the areas of benchmarking, communications and public policy
