SAN JUAN – The Special Claims Committee of the Financial Oversight Board for Puerto Rico published a request for proposals (RFP) Monday in search of an accounting and financial adviser to assist it and its legal adviser, Brown Rudnick, in its investigation of potential claims that might arise from the debt investigation Report by Kobre & Kim.
The scope of the work the committee would need includes accounting and other financial advisory services, analysis regarding solvency of the debtors underTitle III of the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act (Promesa), “as well as the ability to provide potential expert testimony relating to any litigation arising from the investigation,” according to the release.
The board said the advisory firm will report to Brown Rudnick and the committee, and “should possess expertise and experience on restructuring, forensic accounting, litigation support, municipal finance, and capital markets, and should be able to commence work immediately.”
