TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has posted an addendum on the procurement website, MERXTM, which extends the submission deadline for the GTA Gaming Bundle Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ).
OLG is extending the GTA Gaming Bundle RFPQ while it works with Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) on the completion of a long-term lease agreement for OLG’s slots facility at Woodbine Racetrack. The GTA represents a key gaming market that includes a significant amount of horse racing activity in Ontario. Securing a long-term lease with WEG will help contribute to a vibrant and sustainable horse racing industry in Ontario while providing more certainty to the market on OLG’s procurement process.
The previous deadline for the RFPQ was April 30, 2015. Applicants will now have until August 27, 2015 to provide OLG with RFPQ submissions.
Throughout the procurement process, OLG has engaged the services of a Fairness Monitor to provide oversight and advice to support integrity and fairness.
At approximately $2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization will help OLG provide more money to Ontario for hospitals and other government priorities.
OLG is a provincial agency responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $40 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the Province have helped support health care; education, research, prevention and treatment of problem gambling; amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program; and local and provincial charities.
