Maryland State Retirement & Pension System, Baltimore, is searching for an executive search firm to find a new chief investment officer for the $45.7 billion pension fund.
A. Melissa Moye resigned Aug. 4 from the post to become a senior policy adviser with the Treasury Department’s office of state and local finance. Deputy CIO Robert Burd is serving as acting CIO.
The RFP is available on the pension fund’s website. Proposals are due Sept. 22 by 2 pm EDT.
The contract period is 24 months from the date of the award, but “we would hope to get this done fairly quickly,” said spokesman Michael D. Golden.
