INVESTMENTS:

A.     Recommendation from Pension Consulting Alliance (PCA) regarding Asset Allocation -
       Allan Ernkin, Managing Director of PCA, referenced the Board's request for a written
       opinion on the proposed asset allocation and said that he will be coming back to explain
       each component. He said that adopting this recommendation would eliminate the need
       for rebalancing.



                       STRATEGIC ASSET ALLOCATION TARGETS



Commissioner Mims moved approval of the following Resolution:




                                     RESOLUTION 00136


WHEREAS, Pension Consulting Alliance (PCA) recommended a new approach to asset
allocation at the Board Retreat on January 27-28, 2000; and,

WHEREAS, the Board considered the portfolio from a long-term, strategic perspective, using
broadly defined asset classes optimized at the macro level; and,

WHEREAS, of all the portfolio mix options considered, PCA recommended and staff concurs
that the "Actual" portfolio's target allocation offers the best solution with the lowest
implementation cost; and,

WHEREAS, staff recommends suspending the rebalancing model until tactical asset allocation
targets are adopted;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board suspends the rebalancing model until
tactical asset allocation targets are adopted, and adopts the "Actual" strategic asset allocation
targets listed below:

*In reference to real estate and alternative equity their allocation will float as capital
commitments are called down with the cash coming from S&P 500 and EAFE index portfolios.
Over the next 18 months it is very unlikely that the allocation to these two asset classes will each
exceed 4% of total assets.

which motion was seconded by Commissioner Ryder and approved by the following vote: ayes;
Commissioners Mims, Ryder, Smith, Spiker, Thomas, and President Doheny - 6; nays - none




B.     Pathway Capital Management update of Investment Policy - Karen Jakobi, Director, and

       Investment Strategy.


       Ms Jakobi pointed out the two changes in the target ranges as Acquisitions from 40% to
       60% changed downward to 35% to 50%; and Venture Capital from 10% to 20% changed
       upward to 25% to 40%. She said the target allocation will be reached in approximately
       four years.

       for the year 2000, which motion was seconded by Commissioner Mims and approved by

       President Doheny - 6; nays - none


       Commissioner Mims requested that the Board continue to receive recommendations from
       staff, and that the Board Members carefully consider recommendations from the
       consultants rather than accepting them without question.

CONSIDERATION OF FIDUCIARY LIABILITY INSURANCE - Staff recommended that the
Board approve a three-year renewal of the fiduciary insurance policy for a combined premium of
$195,000.


                           FIDUCIARY LIABILITY INSURANCE


Commissioner Mims moved approval of the following Resolution:


                                     RESOLUTION 00138


WHEREAS, three years ago the Board purchased a three-year fiduciary insurance policy at a
cost of $152,000 for $25,000,0000 of coverage with a $125,000 deductible, and

WHEREAS, the quote for fiduciary coverage is tied to the assets of the Plan, and considering the
growth of the portfolio this quote seems reasonable, and

WHEREAS, staff is recommending the three-year fee as it averages to a cost of $65,000 a year
which is nearly a $20,000 annual saving, and

WHEREAS, with the changes in benefits and the increased autonomy provided by the new
Charter, staff believes that it is prudent for the Board to maintain this coverage;

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Board hereby approves a three-year renewal
of the fiduciary insurance policy for a combined premium of $195,000;


which motion was seconded by Commissioner Smith and approved by the following vote: ayes;
Commissioners Mims, Ryder, Smith, Spiker, Thomas, and President Doheny - 6; nays - none

                                              VI



FINDINGS OF FACT - JOHNNY NEWMAN - The Board of Administration denied the
Government Service Buyback application of Mr. Newman on November 9, 1999. The City
Attorney has prepared the Findings of Fact based on the information considered by the Board in
denying the application. Adoption of the Findings of Fact is a final step in the denial process.
This formal statement can be the basis for an appeal. Members have 90 days from the date of
adoption to file an appeal of the Board's decision.

Commissioner Smith moved approved of the Findings of Fact for Johnny Newman, which
motion was seconded by Commissioner Mims, and approved by the following vote: ayes,
Commissioners Mims, Ryder, Smith, Spiker, Thomas, and President Doheny - 6, nays, none.



                                              VII



GOVERNMENT SERVICE BUYBACK APPEAL - ANTONIO MIERA - Staff recommended
that the Board deny Mr. Miera's request to purchase service credit from March to September of
1953 through the Government Service Buyback Program.

The staff report states the following:

"Staff believes that the personal letter from the Land Commissioner does not provide enough
proof for the employment. First, the certification of employment is by a person-mot a
government agency. Second, there is no specific date for the period of employment. GSB rules
require at least six months of continuous employment. From the certification letter, we cannot
find any proof that there is at least six months of continuous employment.

"Mr. Miera is appealing this decision to the Board. The Los Angeles City Administrative Code
Section 4.1052.2. (d) states:

       "A member electing to buy back credit for previous service with other
       governmental entities . . . shall submit proof acceptable to the Board of
       Administration establishing the fact of such other service with another
       governmental entity ... such purchase shall be limited to not less than six months
       of uninterrupted service from a single entity."

The Board was provided with a copy of Mr. Miera's GSB application, appeal letter, and the
certification letter from the Land Commissioner.

After consideration of the evidence presented and discussion by the Board, Commissioner Spiker
moved that the Board approve Antonio Miera's request to purchase service credit from March to
September of 1953 through the Government Service Buyback Program; which motion was
seconded by Commissioner Mims, and approved by the following vote: ayes, Commissioners
Mims, Ryder, Smith, Spiker, Thomas, and President Doheny 6, nays, none.

FIRST PRESENTATION OF DRAFT BUDGET FISCAL YEAR 2000/01 - This item was
deferred.



                                                                               February 8, 2000

                                                IX



BUDGET FOR OFFICE REMODEL - The Manager-Secretary explained that there was a delay
in preparing the report due to a delay in calculations by the contractor.

The staff recommended that the Board authorize the General Manager to expend up to $295,000
for furniture and general contractor costs to remodel the Department offices on the second and
eighth floors and to execute the necessary documents.

Commissioner Thomas requested that she be provided a copy of the report for the first remodel,
the budget allocated at that time, and the actual amount spent. She also requested a detailed
budget itemizing the expenses estimated to cost $295,000, and asked if this is all that will be
needed. She said that it was her understanding that the original expense was for facilities that
would be adequate for five years.

Commissioner Mims said that the number of workstations proposed does not seem adequate for
the additional positions contemplated during the organizational restructuring.

The Manager-Secretary said that these are the expenses that are anticipated for this remodel, and
that he can request the detail from the contractor and the furniture.

Commissioner Smith expressed concern regarding the contracting procedure and was assured
that the appropriate bidding process was followed.

Commissioner Ryder would like to get a sense of how much surplus space will result from this
plan, where the growth will occur, and how it accommodates the growth of staff, as well as the
timing involved.

The item will be deferred until the meeting of February 22, 2000 and detailed information will be
provided regarding expenses as well as a historical perspective of the total project.


Items X and XI were considered at the same time.

LETTER FROM GISELLE M. HAUPT REGARDING HEALTH INSURANCE - The
Manager-Secretary referenced the letters from Ethel Sandell and Giselle M. Haupt complaining
of problems with health care providers. The problems range from information not being
provided to participants to carriers eliminating out-of-state coverage for members.

President Doheny directed staff to respond as appropriate to each letter and if they are addressed
to the Board, prepare a letter for his signature.

              Assembly being held March 11-14, 2000 in Palm Springs, California. He
              encouraged the Board Members to attend because of the support it generates for

              four Board Members will be scheduled for the next meeting.

       2.     The Manager-Secretary asked if any Board Member would be interested in the
              Schroder Client Conference in London, June 7-11,2000, with the only cost being
              airfare to London. Commissioner Smith volunteered to attend. A budget will be
