The Northern LGPS (GMPF, MPF, & WYPF) wishes to set up a framework for Investment Property Management Services. Full details of the requirements are set out in the tender pack. In summary, the framework will comprise 6 areas of work divided into Lots. Each Lot will have a number of providers, from whom each of the funds can procure services by way of a mini-competition depending on its needs. As can be seen, the current total value of mandates across all three funds is £2 billion (£2,000,000,000). Some of the current mandates overlap across the way the Lots have been divided up, and so the total amount of mandated work from a particular fund may not increase significantly when divided across the Lots. The Northern LGPS estimates that mandates totalling approximately £2 bn - £2.5 bn may be awarded under the lifetime of the framework across all Lots.
