BOARD/COMMISSION REVIEW:
N/A

BACKGROUND:
The City has maintained three separate vendor relationships related to fixed income money management since 2016.

In September 2016, the City Council awarded contracts to PFM Asset Management and Taplin, Canida & Habacht (now Loop Capital Asset Management - TCH) for investment management services. These two firms invest funds for which the City has no immediate need, i.e., reserve funds, in fixed income portfolios in compliance with state statute and the City's Investment and Cash Management Policy. The initial contract term expired in 2019 and the City Council subsequently approved three, one-year extension options included within the initial agreement. The final option year extension expires September 30, 2022.

The initial contract term expired in 2018 and the City Manager subsequently approved four, one-year extension options included within the initial agreement. The final option year extension expires December 31, 2022.
