Requests for proposal

General information

As a public institution, FDC is subject to Luxembourg legislation on public procurement for the selection of its service providers. More specifically, FDC is subject to the provisions of the law of 8 April 2018 on public procurements.

The given law foresees that electronic communication is mandatory for contracts exceeding the European thresholds. All communication between the publication of the contract notice and the order placement is affected by this obligation and must therefore take place via the dedicated public tender portal Portail des marchés publics.

Therefore, any company wishing to participate for example in a tender for the award of portfolio management mandates on behalf of FDC’s SICAV must download the tender documents, submit its questions for clarification and submit its offer electronically, also signed electronically, via the above-mentioned portal. FDC therefore invites each company to inform itself of these modalities by consulting the Portail des marchés publics and to verify if they have the necessary means of authentication. A handbook is available for download at the below "For more information - Related procedures" sub-section.

In addition to legal publications on the Portail des marchés publics and in the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union, FDC advertises its public tenders for the award of mandates on behalf of its SICAV also via its website.
