Request for Information – Catastrophe Modeling Secondary Modifier Services

On July 16, 2021, the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA) issued a Request for Information (the "RFI") to solicit submissions for the services described therein. TWIA engages with third party vendors to provide probabilistic catastrophe (CAT) modeling services and is investigating the availability and cost of additional information (secondary modifiers) about its residential book of business to incorporate into model results.

Written Questions and Responses
Written questions and responses to the RFI are available on our website here.

Review Process

The submissions will be reviewed by the RFI coordinator and TWIA staff. The evaluators will consider how well the vendor's proposed solution meets TWIA's needs as described in the RFI. It is important that all responses be clear and complete so that the evaluators can adequately understand all aspects of the response. The evaluation process may or may not lead to a contract award.

TWIA accepts no obligation for any costs incurred in responding to the RFI and reserves the right to accept or reject any or all submissions.
