OLG begins RFP phase of gaming procurement
OLG has initiated the next phase of its procurement process by issuing Request for Proposal (RFP) documents to pre-qualified service providers selected to bid on the East Gaming Bundle. The RFP will enable OLG to select one service provider to run the day-to-day gaming operations in three Gaming Zones. One zone is currently served by OLG Slots at Kawartha Downs and a second by OLG Casino Thousand Islands. In the third zone, which includes the area around the City of Belleville, there is the potential for a new gaming site. To OLG, the integrity of the procurement process is of the utmost importance. Procurement involves information of a commercially sensitive nature. As a result, details of the RFP documents and names of pre-qualified service providers will not be released while the process is ongoing. Additionally, there will be no further communication about the RFP for this bundle until a proponent is announced. OLG expects to announce a successful proponent in early 2015.
