The Dutch Europol Pension Fund is expected to reach a decision on investment and administration providers in June.
At the end of March, the Hague-based EUR2.6m fund for European Police Office staff announced that it planned to outsource its asset management, risk management and fund administration.
Roeland Woldhuis, first officer for Europol's financial unit, said that the contracts would start in July.
The fund was created in 1998 following the Europol convention - an international treaty. The treaty came into force in October 1998, and the fund became active in July 1999.
