Nevada State General Fund, Las Vegas, will issue an RFP in August for a firm to handle securities lending services for its $1.4 billion in assets, said Kathy Besser, chief of staff. The four-year contract of incumbent Metropolitan West expires Nov. 30; MetWest can rebid, Ms. Besser said. The RFP will be posted in mid- to late August on the state treasurer's website, http://nevadatreasurer.org. Responses will be due in mid-September; further details have not been determined. Fund officials will not use a consultant.
