Posting Summary
In January 2008, the Toronto Office of Partnerships developed the Process for receiving and reviewing Unsolicited Quotations and Proposals. This process, which supplements the Council-approved Unsolicited Quotations or Proposals Policy, established a framework through which external organizations seeking to do business with the City, outside of the conventional procurement system, are given an opportunity to have their ideas presented and evaluated.  
The Unsolicited Quotations or Proposals Policy requires that all eligible Unsolicited Proposals be subject, upon Council approval, to the Swiss Challenge, a specialized procurement process that is distinct from the City’s traditional RFQ/RFP procedure.  
The Swiss Challenge Request for Proposals (SC-RFP) process provides the City of Toronto with a method for evaluating Unsolicited Proposals and then offers other interested parties, with the capability to deliver a like product, an opportunity to Bid on the original Unsolicited Proposals by offering a Counter Proposal, while at the same time protecting the ability of the unsolicited participant to match any other competing Counter Proposal. Its intended purpose is to drive City initiative for procedural fairness of an open, fair and transparent process whilst achieving quality Products and/or Services, at the best-value-for-money.  
The purpose of this Swiss Challenge Negotiated Request for Proposals (SC-nRFP) is to invite Counter Proposals to the Unsolicited Proposals received from  PayIt LLC by the City of Toronto (the “City”) to prospective Suppliers for a digital government and payment platform, as further described in Part 3 (the “Deliverables”).

This Swiss Challenge Negotiated Request for Proposal has a revised closing date of October 30, 2020 at 12:00p.m. Toronto Local Time. The City does not post budget information and the opportunity amount does not reflect the City's actual project estimate.
