Aon Creates New Practice for Public Entities Consulting

March 10, 2004

Aon announced the creation of a State and Local Government (SALG) consulting practice. The SALG practice will offer employee benefits and human capital consulting solutions and services to a wide variety of public sector entities, including statewide retirement systems, universities, governing boards and agencies, specifically geared to state and local governments.

The new SALG practice was created as part of Aon Consulting’s Government Human Capital Services Group, which also offers consulting services to federal government agencies.

“With new government regulations, significant budget deficits and emerging government accounting standards, public sector entities need the attention and expertise of top-notch professionals,” stated Roger L. Vaughn, US president, Aon Consulting. “The thousands of state and local government entities nationwide can benefit from the technical and market knowledge contained in our SALG consulting practice.”

Aon’s consulting services for state and local government entities include employee benefits, HR outsourcing, actuarial valuations and certifications, 457 and other retirement plans, GASB/OPEB, Medicaid/SCHIP, compensation, process improvement and employee communications.

Lurline Craig-Burke, based in Atlanta, has been appointed to lead the newly formed practice. Craig-Burke brings a wealth of state health plan government experience in plan administration. Most recently, she served as the Chief Administrator for the State of Georgia Health Benefit Plan, where she oversaw a $2 billion budget for over 600,000 state employees, teachers and their dependents. She has also held numerous government positions in Georgia.
