Board Duties and Purpose

Unsure what their purpose is. In 2005 the committee changed the 457 Plan's investment option choices.

Ordinance 70285- "Authority is hereby granted for the establishment of a deferred compensation plan for the City of St. Louis. "

(b) In accordance with the regulations applicable to the plan, as set out herein, the Comptroller is authorized to enter into an agreement with eligible participants, whereby said participants may designate a portion of their future earnings to be deducted by the City and placed in a fund to be designated "City of St. Louis Deferred Compensation Plan Fund" for the purpose of providing tax deferred benefits to the participants upon retirement.

(c) The Board of Estimate and Apportionment is hereby authorized to establish or select a specific plan or plans in accordance with the requirements set out in this ordinance. In establishing the plan, the Board of Estimate and Apportionment may elect to retain outside parties to provide administrative and/or investment services after following competitive bidding procedures. The Board of Estimate and Apportionment is authorized, after analyzing the various competitive bids submitted in accordance with the requirements of this ordinance, to select the plan or plans it determines to meet the requirements established as a part of the competitive bidding procedures and to be in the best interest of the participants. No investment plan shall be considered unless offered by a duly licensed resident agent representing a company duly licensed and authorized by the State of Missouri and other applicable federal regulatory agencies to offer such insurance or investment programs.
