OLG BEGINS RFP PHASE OF GAMING PROCUREMENT
TORONTO – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has initiated the next phase of its procurement process for land-based gaming 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.
OLG will release the RFPs for remaining Gaming Bundles in the coming months.
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 $38 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.
