Call for competition for the selection of the Market Infrastructure Board non-central bank members and the creation of a reserve list

(Ref. PRO-008792)

(2023/C 62 A/01)

With this Call for Competition, the European Central Bank (ECB) is launching the process for the selection and appointment of two non-central bank members of the Market Infrastructure Board (MIB) and the establishment of a reserve list.

1.   Background information

In line with the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank, the Eurosystem offers market infrastructures, platforms, applications and related services in the fields of cash settlement, securities settlement and collateral management, comprising TARGET services which include T2, T2S and TIPS services as well as, in the future, ECMS.

On 16 March 2016, the Governing Council of the European Central Bank approved the establishment of the MIB. The MIB is the governance body responsible for technical and operational management tasks in the field of market infrastructure and platforms. On 25 January 2019, the Governing Council adopted Decision (EU) 2019/166 of the European Central Bank (ECB/2019/3) (1) (hereinafter the ‘Decision’).

The MIB is composed of, inter alios, two non-central bank members (without voting rights), one with experience as a senior official in the payments industry, and one with experience as a senior official in the securities industry (Chapter 1, Section 2, of Annex II to the Decision).

The mandate of the MIB, including its objectives, responsibilities and tasks are set out in Annex I to the Decision.

The ECB is organising this Call for Competition to appoint two new non-central bank members of the MIB and establish a reserve list that may be used for the replacement of the non-central bank members of the MIB.

2.   Place of execution/performance of the works

Services are provided both remotely and at the ECB’s premises in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and may involve travel to other EU locations.

3.   Type of procedure: call for competition

The ECB invites applications with a view to selecting and appointing two candidates as non-central bank members of the MIB and to create a reserve list for replacements. The selection is solely based on the quality of the applications received.

The procedure will be governed by Annex IV to the Decision, which establishes the procedures and requirements applicable to the selection, appointment and replacement of the non-central bank members of the MIB, as well as by Decision (EU) 2016/245 of the European Central Bank (ECB/2016/2) (2).
