Chicago Public School Teachers’ Pension & Retirement Fund extended the due date for submissions of proposals for two separate RFPs, Andrew Kelsen, portfolio manager-alternative investments with the $10.2 billion fund, said in an e-mail Monday.
”Given the numerous industry conferences and vacation schedules that occur at this time of year, we decided extending the deadlines would further ensure that the deepest field of candidates would be able to respond,” Mr. Kelsen said.
The new due date is June 30 for the RFP in a search for infrastructure investment managers to manage up to a total commitment of $50 million.
The new due date is July 10 for the RFP in a search for private equity managers owned by minorities, women, people with disabilities or veterans to manage up to a total of $40 million.
Both RFPs are available at the fund’s website.
