Unsolicited partnership proposals that would provide a profit for the proponent will be evaluated to ensure they deliver the best value to the City. Proposals that do not produce a profit for the proponent are not subject to this process.
Because this is a procurement process, the rules concerning lobbying City Councillors and officials apply.
Proponents submitting unsolicited proposals are not required to register with the Office of the Lobbyist Registrar. Once a proposal is submitted, proponents may not contact anyone other than the TOP or persons designated by TOP.
However, if proponents wish to personally discuss with City Councillors or officials their product or idea before submitting it through the Unsolicited Proposal Process, they will be directed to the Office of the Lobbyist Registrar.
The process has several steps or filters, including a possible "Swiss Challenge" in which competing quotations and proposals are sought by the City. To submit an unsolicited proposal please download and fill out the documents below. The completed forms can be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to:
Toronto Office of Partnerships
55 John Street - Main floor
Toronto, ON MV5 3C6
A detailed description of the process for dealing with unsolicited proposals is available below, along with the policy document. If you have any questions, please contact Peter Remedios, Toronto Office of Partnerships: 416-392-6122 or email@example.com
