OLG Issues RFPQ for Southwest Ontario Gaming Bundle
OLG continues its modernization of gaming in Ontario by launching its fourth gaming Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ). The RFPQ will allow OLG to pre-qualify service providers for specific day-to-day operations of gaming sites in six Gaming Zones in Southwestern Ontario. Through the RFPQ, interested service providers will submit proposals for the entire Southwest Gaming Bundle as set out in the RFPQ. This means that service providers are being asked to demonstrate their ability to operate all six facilities in the Southwest Gaming Bundle, not for individual Gaming Zones or gaming sites contained within a bundle. OLG is releasing RFPQs for the modernization of gaming in stages. It issued its first three RFPQs for nine gaming sites on November 30, 2012—one each for the Ottawa Area, Ontario East and Ontario North—all of which closed in March 2013. OLG is now evaluating submissions for these RFPQs to select service providers who are eligible to receive the Request for Proposals document. OLG will issue separate RFPQs for the remaining Gaming Zones—some in Gaming Bundles—over the next several months.
