For over 8 decades, electricity was generated, transmitted, distributed, sold and bought in the same manner. This all changed in December 1996 when Pennsylvania passed a law, which, among other requirements, provided customers the option of competitively buying their electric supply needs. To assist AICUP and its members in sorting through the issues created by retail deregulation, AICUP contracted with Utility Solutions Inc. (USI). Member colleges are priced individually to assure that one does not subsidize another. By participating in the program, AICUP members can be assured of getting excellent rates, stability over a longer term, and many other value-added products (e.g. Green Power).

These consultants are: Millennium Advisory Services, Pentegra, PlanPilot, PRM Consulting Group and TIAA.

  • The average college has $31 million in retirement assets.
  • The average number of active employees is 229.
  • The average current administrative recordkeeping fee is about 26 basis points.
  • In addition to the administrative savings, the estimated MEP savings on the investment lineup is projected to be about 20%.
  • Employee education would be provided by an independent firm that has been successful in increasing on campus individual meetings and assisting employees to move assets to the less expensive MEP investment
  • 11 Guiding Principles have been created as the vision for the MEP.

Member schools with these existing metrics can expect to experience similar results.
