SUMMARY STATEMENT:

                     The Permanent Fund Committee unanimously wishes to continue with the City’s longstanding relationship with Callan Associates, Inc., as permanent fund advisor.

                     The City’s procurement code mandates a Request for Proposals for any contract exceeding $100K.  This threshold applies to the aggregate costs of multi-year contracts.

                     Callan has increased their fees by 3% annually since their original engagement in 2012. Their standard inflation figure now puts their annual fees over $100K.  They have agreed to keep their fees below $100K and to use one-year contracts. The 2020 contract is for $99,999.

                     The basis for not seeking competitive bids is to continue a longstanding beneficial relationship, and to proactively contain cost increases.

                     This report is submitted pursuant to section 2.80.040 of the Municipal Code.
