TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has issued Request for Proposal (RFP) documents to pre-qualified proponents selected to bid on the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle.
Today’s announcement is the latest step in OLG’s ongoing modernization and builds on two recent procurement announcements: the release of the RFPQ for the Niagara Gaming Bundle (October 13) and the release of the RFP for the West GTA Gaming Bundle (October 20).
The RFP for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle will enable OLG to select one service provider to run certain day-to-day gaming operations at OLG Slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway, the only gaming site in the bundle.
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 spring 2017.
At more than $2.2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization helps OLG provide more money to Ontario for key government services.
OLG is the Ontario government agency that delivers gaming entertainment in a socially responsible manner. OLG conducts and manages gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, PlayOLG Internet gaming, the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres and is leading the integration of horse racing into the provincial gaming strategy. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $44 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. These payments to the province support the operation of hospitals, amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program, local and provincial charities and problem gambling prevention, treatment and research.
All for Here – 100 per cent of OLG’s proceeds are invested in Ontario
