OLG re-issues RFPQ for Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle
OLG has re-issued a Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle on the procurement website, MERXTM. OLG originally issued an RFPQ for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle in November 2012. The RFPQ was cancelled in December 2015 because OLG and the landlord were not able to finalize a lease for the one gaming site in the bundle—OLG Slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway. A finalized lease for the gaming site is required for OLG to proceed with the procurement process to select a service provider for the bundle, given that relocation is not a viable option at this time. OLG and the landlord have now finalized a lease for the site and OLG is re-issuing the RFPQ for the bundle. Re-issuing the RFPQ will enable OLG to pre-qualify the potential proponents that are eligible to receive the Request for Proposals (RFP) documents. RFPQ applicants are required to provide information on their experience in areas such as gaming and property development. From the RFP submissions, OLG will select one service provider to run certain day-to-day operations of the gaming site at Rideau Carleton Raceway. The RFPQ will close on August 4, 2016 and OLG will begin the RFP process for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle in the coming months. Read the full announcement.
