The board may select more than one manager. Minority- and women-owned managers are strongly encouraged to bid. Its current core fixed income managers are Fidelity Institutional Asset Management and Income Research & Management. It could not be learned if they are invited to rebid. FIAM manages about $75 million and Income Research & Management, $59 million.

The RFP is available on Segal Marco's website. Proposals are due by 3 p.m. EDT June 14. A selection date was not disclosed.
