IPERS is requesting proposals from firms to provide divestment research services to comply with Iowa Code Chapter 12J which prohibits state funds and funds administered by the state, including public employees retirement funds, from investing in companies that engage in boycotts and related tactics against the state of Israel.

IPERS issued a request for proposals (RFP #I-2017-2) on October 19, 2016, for divestment research services. However, IPERS was unable to reach contract terms with either of the two vendors that submitted proposals. Therefore, IPERS is re-issuing the RFP for divestment research services (RFP #I- 2017-2B) with revised minimum qualifications, scope of services and evaluation criteria. Note that the time for submission of proposals is very short: due March 9, 2017.
