On Monday, August 28, 2017, the Toronto Police Service released a Request for Proposal (RFP) seeking a vendor to complete an organizational culture assessment of the Toronto Police Service (TPS) as recommended by the Transformational Task Force in Chapter 6 of the final report the Action Plan: The Way Forward.

The objective of the RFP is to engage the public and Service members in a dialogue that is both candid and transparent. The assessment process will be comprehensive and inclusive and will consider all the ways in which organizational culture is embedded within the Service. The results of the assessment will provide an in-depth understanding of the current organizational culture of the TPS, including its strengths and any areas for improvement. This assessment will also provide assistance to leaders and key stakeholder groups in creating action plans which will strengthen the organizational culture, improve organizational performance and achieve a modernized model of policing for the City of Toronto as described in the Final Report.

Interested parties are invited to go to MERX to review the RFP. Please note that all information must be obtained through the formal procurement process as outlined on MERX. Questions can only be directed to TPS Purchasing Services at 416-808-7995.

The RFP is being done as part of the implementation of recommendation #24 of the Final Report. The Final Report, released on January 26, 2017, aims to develop a modernized model of policing with a focus on community safety by directing resources to where the public needs them most, embracing partnerships and concentrating on the complex needs of our large city.
