El Paso County Retirement Plan seeks OCIO

El Paso County Retirement Plan, Colorado Springs, Colo., is searching for outsourced CIO services, said Thomas Pfeifle, executive director of the $380 million pension fund.

The search is being conducted because the retirement board requested the county put a bid out for investment advisory services that are more discretionary in nature. Ellwood Associates is the current investment consultant and is invited to bid.

The RFP is available on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System website. Registration is required. Proposals are due at 2 p.m. MDT on Oct. 31. A hiring decision is expected to be made before the end of the year, Mr. Pfeifle said.
