TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is providing two separate procurement notifications today.
The first is the Request for Information (RFI) for a potential privately-funded multi-purpose event centre in Niagara Falls closed today.
The RFI was launched on December 12, 2013. The RFI submissions OLG has received will help it gauge interest in the marketplace for developing and financing a potential Niagara Entertainment /pCentre that is similar to, or larger in size and scale than facilities at Caesars Windsor and Casino Rama.
The second notification is that OLG is extending the closing date for the Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) for the GTA Gaming Bundle to May 8, 2014. OLG will issue an addendum to the RFPQ on the procurement website MERXTM in the coming weeks, which will provide further details.
In order to protect the integrity of the procurement process, OLG will not provide further details about the addendum until it is posted on MERXTM and available to all proponents at the same time.
RFPQs for the West GTA and Central Gaming Bundles will close as scheduled on March 13, 2014.
At $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 hospitals and other government priorities.
OLG is a provincial agency responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $38 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the Province have helped support health care; education, research, prevention and treatment of problem gambling; amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program; and local and provincial charities.
