Additional documentation to support the submission:

"The University Treasurer is responsible for managing the University's operating investment portfolio and for providing oversight for the investment portfolios of the University DSOs and CUs, pursuant to the USF Investment Policy."

"The USF Foundation Board is the fiduciary for endowments. The management of endowments is carried out by the Board's Investment Committee, which is responsible for such matters as asset allocation, investment manager selection and spending. The Investment Committee is supported by its investment consultant and Foundation investment staff."

Endowment Management and Governance
"Most of the assets within the endowment are pooled and invested in one managed endowment portfolio, over which the University has investment discretion. Decisions regarding investment policy, strategy, asset allocation targets, and changes in investments are made by members of the University’s Investment Committee, which is a standing committee of the Board of Trustees. There are 12 members of the Committee, made up of University Trustees, University administrators, alumni, and other investment professionals.

The Investment Committee meets on a quarterly basis each February, May, August, and November, and meets periodically between quarterly meetings to address immediate issues or investment opportunities. The Investment Committee has three subcommittees that review investment opportunities within certain sectors or strategies. These subcommittees then recommend new investments to the full committee for approval."
