Explanation
* Investment custodian and trustee services are needed to provide trust custody accounts and safe-keeping services for the city's Consolidated Investment Pool, the Long-Term Investment Program (LTIP), and the debt program.
* The city manages a $2.5 billion Consolidated Investment Pool as part of its daily operations and is invested in accordance with North Carolina General Statutes (G.S.) 159-30 and 159-31. Investments in this portfolio are managed with the objectives of safety, liquidity, and return, and typically have daily settlement activity.
* The city also manages the LTIP in which the city's long-term capital reserves are invested under expanded investment authorization outlined in G.S. 147-69.2(b)(1)-(6) and (8) to diversify investment assets and provide a funding source for future Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) obligations.
* Lastly, the city manages a $4.4 billion debt program authorized under G.S. 160A-20 and G.S. Chapter 159, Article 7. Long-term and short-term debt may be used to finance essential capital facilities, projects, and capital equipment purchases.
* On September 18, 2020, the city issued a Request for Proposals (RFP); four responses were received.
* US Bank best meets the city's needs in terms of qualifications, experience, cost, and responsiveness to RFP requirements.
* Total annual expenditures are estimated to be $216,500.
