CalSTRS Picks Alt. Consulting Finalists

May 1 2007 | 12:17pm ET

Two firms vying for the $162 billion California State Teachers' Retirement System’s alternatives investment consulting services contract have made it into the final round. The system will interview finalists Ennis Knupp and Pension Consulting Alliance at its May 3 meeting, according to an internal investment memo.

CalSTRS issued a request for proposals on Feb. 23 and received six bids by the final filing date, March 30. Five of the six proposals passed the preliminary review for compliance with minimum qualifications and requirements and proceeded to the evaluation phase of the process. “After accumulating all the scoring, two firms stood clearly at the top,” according to the memo. “There was a clear distance between these two leaders and third place, enough that only two were invited to make final presentations.”

CalSTRS’ current contract for alternative consulting services with McKinsey and Company expires on June 30, 2007.
