Oregon Retirement Savings Board

Oregon Retirement Savings Board

The OregonSaves retirement program is administered by the Oregon Treasury Savings Network which is a division of the Oregon State Treasury. As required by the Enabling Legislation, the Oregon Retirement Savings Board was tasked with the establishment and oversight of a state-run retirement savings program that provides Oregonians with an opportunity to save through payroll deductions. The seven-member board is chaired by the Oregon State Treasurer and includes four members appointed by the Governor—a representative of employers, a representative with experience in investments, a representative of an association representing employees, and a member of the public who is retired; a member of the Oregon House of Representatives; and a member of the Oregon Senate.

Prior to establishing the program, the Board conducted a market analysis and feasibility study, consulted with legal experts, and engaged a wide range of stakeholders—including representatives of workers, various-sized employers, business associations, industry groups, and professionals in the financial services industry—in a thoughtful, deliberate public process to help ensure that the public had an opportunity to comment and provide input on the program.

The Board has general and fiduciary responsibility for the program. The Board meets quarterly to discuss legislative activities, review program policies and investments, and make program decisions. All of the meetings are open to the public.
