In addition, the policy shall provide procedures for compliance with subsection (c) of K.S.A. 12-1675, and amendments thereto, and a certification from the investment management staff that those procedures have been followed.

(c) The investment policy of any city, county or school district approved by the pooled money investment board under this section shall be reviewed and approved at least annually by such board or when such city, county or school district makes changes in such investment policy. On condition of approving the investment policy, the pooled money investment board shall review the policy to assure that it addresses liquidity, diversification, safety of principal, yield, maturity and quality and capability of investment management staff. In addition, the policy shall provide procedures for compliance with subsection (c) of K.S.A. 12-1675, and amendments thereto, a certification from the investment management staff that those procedures have been followed and a listing of the banks, savings and loan associations and savings banks from which the city, county or school district requested bids in the preceding year.
