GTA Gaming Bundle RFPQ Submission Deadline Extended
TORONTO, ON – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has posted an addendum on the procurement website, MERXTM, which extends the submission deadline for the GTA Gaming Bundle Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ).

The previous deadline for the RFPQ was November 6, 2014. Applicants will now have until April 30, 2015 to provide OLG with RFPQ submissions.
