The Office of the City Treasurer of the City of Chicago (the “City Treasurer’s Office”) is in the process of compiling a list of qualified brokers/dealers with whom it will place orders to purchase and sell securities for various City of Chicago accounts beginning in the second quarter of 2019. It is the policy of the City Treasurer’s Office to only approve a broker/dealer for inclusion on the list of Approved Firms if the Firm maintains a physical office within the City of Chicago.

To be considered for inclusion on the list of Approved Firms in 2019, your Firm must submit a complete hardcopy Request for Information (“RFI”) response to the City Treasurer’s Office by Friday, February 22, 2019.  Please refer to the section entitled “Checklist” located in this packet for a complete list of documents that must be submitted as part of your Firm’s RFI response.  If a question does not apply to your Firm, the question should be answered “none” or “not applicable.”  Complete and legible copies of all requested documents should accompany the RFI response.  The broker/dealers that the City Treasurer’s Office deems Approved Firms for 2019 will be notified by the City Treasurer in writing of their eligibility to transact investments for the City of Chicago by March 2019.

If you have any questions about the RFI process or the bid/quote procedures, please call Assistant City Treasurer, Mary Christine Jackman, of the Office of the City Treasurer, at (312) 744-3363 for further assistance.
