This REOI is the first step of a two step tendering process. DFAT will shortlist Respondents from this REOI process (step 1) who will be invited to submit a tender in the second step, the Request for Tender (RFT). A failure to respond to this REOI will result in a potential supplier not being eligible to participate in any subsequent RFT process. DFAT intends to have rights as a sponsor and sole beneficiary under a trust established for the EMIIF. A preferred trustee will be selected under a separate procurement process to act as trustee of the EMIIF (Trustee). The trust will require the Trustee to enter into an Investment Management Agreement with the entity that is selected as the successful Respondent following the RFT that is conducted subsequent to this REOI. The Investment Manager will provide investment management services to the Trustee (as the trustee of the EMIIF trust).
