Overview and Scope of the Requirement
The Authority as the contracting authority is tendering for the supply of Services to the MPS. The MPS/Authority is seeking through this tendering process to award a contract with a suitably capable Bidder to provide these services for an initial term of 60 months and a unilateral option of the MPS/Authority to extend for further periods of 24 months up to a maximum of 84 months for the total contract period.


MOPAC/MPS will require two main bank accounts:

Fund Main Supply Account
Fund Drawing Account

In addition to the main accounts approximately 80 bank accounts will be required by divisions and operational departments. Most of these accounts are operated on an imprest basis and are funded periodically.

Bank accounts are also maintained for holding significant balances on behalf of third parties (Requirements Specification provides more detail).

Bidders must be capable of opening/operating any reasonable number of bank accounts on behalf of MOPAC/MPS and be capable of closing accounts/opening new bank accounts within 48 hours of receiving the appropriate instruction.

Accounts must be open for the first day of the contract (currently 1st March 2022) and all necessary ancillary functions (ability to make deposits, withdrawals, intra account transfers and enquiries be in place).


The majority of bank accounts are currently pooled within a single group structure. A number of bank accounts are outside of the pooling arrangements as they hold non MOPAC/MPS balances (e.g. third party bank accounts).

Bidders must be capable of pooling any number of bank accounts into more than one pooling group if required and be capable of establishing automatic transfers/sweeps between nominated bank accounts.


MOPAC/MPS manages significant balances that have been confiscated under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA), held under other legislation deposited in the De-tained Monies Account (DMA), held under other legislation deposited in the Account Freezing Orders (AFO) account, held under other legislation deposited in the Anti-Terrorism Crime and Security Act (ATCSA) and other third party monies processed by police through the Divisional Account. The current bank provides a virtual ac-count service that facilitates the management of these funds.
