Requests for proposal concerning the SICAV

As a public institution, FDC is required to select its service providers in accordance with the Luxembourgish procurement legislation. More precisely, FDC is subject to the provisions of the law of 8 April 2018 regarding public procurements when selecting its service providers.

The given law foresees that electronic communication is mandatory for contracts exceeding the European thresholds launched after 18 October 2018. All communication between the publication of the contract notice and the order placement is concerned by this obligation and needs therefore to be done through the dedicated public tender portal www.pmp.lu.

Thus, every company that wishes to participate in a tender concerning the awarding of portfolio management mandates on behalf of FDC’s SICAV needs to, among others, download the tender documents, introduce its questions of clarification and submit electronically its offer, the latter also being signed electronically, via the above-mentioned portal.

Hence, FDC invites every company to inform themselves as of now of these new modalities by consulting the official website www.marches-publics.lu and to verify if they have the necessary means of authentication (connection via LuxTrust product, connection via eIDAS). 

In addition to the legal publications, FDC announces the launch of its requests for proposal also via its website. Currently, there is no request for proposal in progress.
