As a public agency, the FRR is required to select its contractors using the French government procurement process (ordonnance n°2015-899 du 23 juillet 2015 et au décret d’application n°2016-360 du 25 mars 2016). In addition to publishing mandatory announcements in official gazettes, the FRR communicates on the launch of its RFPs via the print media and its website. The documents needed to reply to RFPs can be downloaded from the French government’s e-bidding platform at the following URL:
In accordance with the regulations governing the FRR (Article R-135- 27 of the CSS), the manager selection committee issues an opinion to the FRR Executive Board on the selection of proposals submitted by prospective asset managers.
The FRR uses mainly two different government procurement procedures for selecting its managers (including the overlay manager): the restricted procedure and the open procedure.
