The plan set minimum requirements of $5 billion in assets under management, more than $3 billion from institutional clients and more than $1 billion in customized portfolios. Interested managers should also have at least seven years' experience.

The deadline for responses is Jan. 21. The RFI is available on the system's Web site.
