Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation, Columbus, narrowed a search for a consultant to three finalists and expects to make a decision at its Aug. 19 board meeting, said Robert Cowan, CIO for the $17.5 billion fund. Mr. Cowan, who declined to name finalists, did say he expects the fund to go from using three consultants to one. Basically, whomever we hire will assume the duties of the three incumbents, he said. Contracts of the incumbents Callan Associates, Fiduciary Investment Solutions and Gray & Co., which all rebid have expired. However, the fund will continue to use Callan on a month-to-month contract basis until a decision is made, said Mr. Cowan.
