OLG RE-ISSUES RFPQ FOR OTTAWA AREA GAMING BUNDLE
TORONTO – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is re-issuing 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. OLG will begin the RFP process for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle in the coming months.
Throughout the procurement process, OLG has engaged the services of a Fairness Monitor to provide oversight and advice to support integrity and fairness.
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.
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
