Kentucky Retirement Systems, Frankfort, plans to issue an RFP for a general consultant, said CIO Adam Tosh. The $16.1 billion funds current consultant, Strategic Investment Services, can rebid, Mr. Tosh said. SIS has mainly been assisting with alternative investments; systems officials are now looking for a consultant that can help in a variety of areas. The fund could hire one or two consultants, one general investment and one for alternatives. It will depend on the responses we get (to the RFP), Mr. Tosh said. The RFP will be available on the funds website, http://www.kyret.com/RequestForProposals.htm. A hire is expected by late May, Mr. Tosh said.
