The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has initiated the final phase of its procurement process for lottery by issuing Request for Proposal (RFP) documents to pre-qualified service providers.
The RFP will enable OLG to select one service provider to run specific day-to-day operations of the lottery business in Ontario.
To OLG, the integrity of the procurement process is of the utmost importance. Procurement involves information of a commercially sensitive nature. As a result, details of the RFP documents and names of pre-qualified proponents will not be released while the process is ongoing. There will be no further communication about the RFP until a service provider is announced. OLG expects to announce the successful service provider in fall 2015.
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 hospitals and other government priorities.
