Words like mission, vision and values take on real meaning within the walls of the Oklahoma Public Employees Retirement System. The mission of OPERS is to provide and promote accountable and financially sound retirement programs for those who have dedicated themselves to serving the people of our great state. Our vision is to exceed the expectations of our customers and be recognized for excellence in providing retirement services to our members and helping them be financially prepared for retirement.
The six sections of the annual report are introduced by one of the six core values and behaviors the OPERS Board and staff adhere to in the administration of a strong, financially sound retirement system:
- Honesty and Integrity
- Customer Service
- Workforce Development
These values and behaviors serve as guideposts in meeting the daily challenges of serving a growing membership, as well as establishing and meeting long-term business goals. The System will continue to rise to new challenges with these fundamental beliefs influencing our decisions and guiding our actions.
