  2. Maintain sufficient liquidity to enable Rogue Community College to meet all anticipated operating requirements, including construction draws of bond proceeds.
  3. Diversify to reduce unnecessary risk by avoiding over concentration in specific security types, issuance, issuer, industries, and, to the extent permitted by cash requirements, maturity ranges.
  4. Strive to maintain the maximum rate of return throughout budgetary and economic cycles given the constraints and spirit of this policy.
  5. Establish guidelines and procedures for investments pursuant to ORS Chapter 294
