New Hampshire Retirement System, Concord, will begin searching for an investment consultant next week, confirmed spokesman Marty Karlon.
The $5.8 billion system will issue an RFP as part of a “best practices” procedure, Mr. Karlon said in a telephone interview.
He said the system has not issued an RFP for a consultant since 2009.
Mr. Kalon says he expects the RFP to be posted on the system’s website, www.nhrs.org, sometime next week.
Incumbent NEPC is invited to rebid. A timetable for a decision has yet to be determined, according to Mr. Karlon.
Separately, George P. Lagos was named executive director of the New Hampshire Retirement System, replacing Richard W. Ingram, who left in January 2011. Timothy Crutchfield, the system’s chief legal counsel, had been serving as interim executive director.
Mr. Lagos previously was a principal at GL Insurance Partners, an insurance services firm.
