Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) Process -- Gaming

  • GTA Gaming Bundle - Gaming Zones C2 (OLG Slots at Woodbine Racetrack); C3 (OLG Slots at Ajax Downs); and potentially C8 (Great Blue Heron Casino);

Interested service providers are required to submit proposals for the entire Gaming Bundle as set out in the RFPQ, not for individual Gaming Zones or gaming sites contained within the bundle. This means that service providers are being asked to demonstrate their ability to operate all facilities in the Gaming Bundle.

Service providers must respond to the RFPQ by April 30, 2015. The RFPQ is available on MERXTM www.merx.com/olg. MERXTM charges a small fee to download this material.

In a report delivered to the Minister of Finance on March 12, 2012, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) outlined a proposal to modernize lottery and gaming in Ontario.

To achieve this, OLG is focusing on three priorities:

  • Become more customer-focused;
  • Securing qualified service providers for the day-to-day operation of lottery and gaming; and
  • Renewing OLG's role in the conduct, management and oversight of lottery and gaming.

When OLG's modernization (including initiatives already underway) is fully implemented, OLG will increase its contribution to the Province by continuing to create jobs and triggering private investment across Ontario.

OLG will conduct a competitive procurement process within the guidelines/regulations mandated by the Government of Ontario for these goods/services in the upcoming future.

Vendors are invited to monitor the MERX™ electronic tendering system www.merx.com/olg for this opportunity.
