TORONTO – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (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.
OLG expects to 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 key government services, including health care and education.
OLG is a provincial agency responsible for gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, the PlayOLG Internet gaming website and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres across the province. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $42 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the province have helped support the operation of hospitals; prevention, treatment and research of problem gambling; amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program; and local and provincial charities. OLG was a Premier Sponsor of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.
