MERX Pre-Notice:

Metrolinx, an agency of the Government of Ontario, oversees the delivery of the best possible transportation services today while leading the way to even better, more convenient services tomorrow. Metrolinx is making the best possible use of the public transportation investment dollar and measurably improving the quality of life in our region.
To achieve the capacity, agility and scale required to handle the increased demand for I&IT services, the I&IT organization at Metrolinx is looking to broker specific capabilities for I&IT programs and managed services externally through a 3-stage Collaborative Procurement Process (“CPP”).

Metrolinx will issue the Request for Proposals to select three (3) strategic vendors to support implementation of I&IT programs and managed services.
Please be advised that the RFP for the proponents will include minimum requirements for potential proponents.

Proposed Issuance:

Metrolinx anticipates that the Request for Proposals will be issued in January of 2018. Interested proponents are encouraged to monitor the MERX website for additional information relating to this proposed procurement.

The selected proponents under the Request for Proposals will be required to enter into a non-exclusive agreement with Metrolinx for the provision of the services.
