Jun 16 2006 | 9:57pm ET

The $210 billion California Public Employees Retirement System will issue an RFP for domestic long/short equity managers. According to the plan, firms must have at least $100 million in assets in a risk-controlled long/short strategy that restricts shorting to a maximum of 35% of the portfolio on a market value basis, and have a beta at or very near 1.0.

The RFP will be available on the fund's Web site (www.calpers.ca.gov) on June 26.
