Juneau – On Monday, January 24, the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation posted a Request For Information (RFI) to the State of Alaska’s Online Public Notice (OPN) system APFC- Executive Search Firm- Request for Information, seeking information from executive search firms. This pre-procurement process is intended to collect information, including anticipated costs, from competitive vendors in the industry. The information that we collect from this RFI will help us determine the appropriate type of procurement process that should be followed in selecting an executive search firm to assist the APFC Board of Trustees in recruiting and selecting a new Executive Director. This non-mandatory step is considered a good practice as it assists with collecting the data necessary for drafting a thorough solicitation in a specialized field.
In selecting an executive search firm, APFC is working to develop a competitive procurement in accordance with State of Alaska procurement rules. When finalized, the solicitation will be published on OPN and distributed to interested vendors.
