Ohio Public Employees Deferred Compensation Fund, Columbus, will issue an RFP in mid-July for an education provider, said Keith Overly, executive director. The contract of current education provider Nationwide Retirement Solutions is set to expire this year; Nationwide can rebid. "This is not a reflection of Nationwide's service. This is simply part of the due diligence process," said Mr. Overly, who added that the $5.6 billion plan's policy requires that an RFP be issued when a contract expires. Proposals are due Oct. 20, and a selection should be chosen in November, Mr. Overly said.
