Whether current consultant Cambridge Associates is eligible to rebid could not be immediately learned.
As of June 30, the endowment fund's actual allocation was: 32% developed markets equities; 18% each, absolute return and emerging markets equities; 15% private equity; 10% fixed income; 4% real assets and the rest in opportunistic credit.
The RFP is available on the Washington state procurement website. Registration is required. Proposals are due at 5 p.m. PST on Feb. 16. A selection is scheduled to be announced April 20.
