Plymouth (Mass.) County Retirement System is searching for either an active or passive domestic small-cap value equity manager to run $55 million, said Bill Farmer, executive director of the $600 million fund. Funding will come from an active domestic small-cap core strategy run by Columbia Management, which can bid on the value RFP. Fund executives decided to add a value strategy. The RFP is available on consultant Wainwright Investment Counsel's website at www.winvcounsel.com/rfp.html. Proposals are due by 2 p.m. EDT March 21, and fund officials hope to make a selection by the end of April.
