OLG issues RFP for GTA Gaming Bundle
OLG is continuing its procurement process for land-based gaming by issuing Request for Proposal (RFP) documents to pre-qualified proponents selected to bid on the GTA Gaming Bundle. The RFP will enable OLG to select one service provider to run certain day-to-day gaming operations for the two gaming sites in the Gaming Bundle—OLG Slots at Woodbine Racetrack and OLG Slots at Ajax Downs. In addition, OLG continues to have discussions with the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, regarding the possible inclusion of the Great Blue Heron Casino within the GTA Gaming Bundle. Some draft agreements have been developed and will be put forward for required approvals by the Provincial government, the OLG Board of Directors and others as necessary. If and when applicable, further details will be provided by OLG to proponents during the RFP process. The GTA RFP follows the selection of a service provider for the East Gaming Bundle and release of RFPs for the North and Southwest Gaming Bundles. To OLG, the integrity of the procurement process is of the utmost importance. Public procurements involve information of a commercially sensitive nature. As a result, details of the RFP documents and names of pre-qualified proponents will not be released by OLG while the process is ongoing. Additionally, there will be no further communication by OLG about the RFP for this bundle until the selected service provider is announced. OLG expects to announce the successful service provider in late summer 2017. Read the full announcement.
