As the Toronto Police Service (TPS) continues to modernize, a Request for Proposal (RFP) was released on September 26, 2017 seeking a vendor to host a series of Virtual Town Hall meetings.

“The TPS is looking to better engage with the public and Service members through a broad, inclusive and ongoing strategy. The goal is to enhance our engagement with individuals in the neighbourhoods we serve and to communicate more effectively with them,” said Acting Inspector Greg Watts, TPS. “Additionally, two-way communication with our Service members is a key priority during the transformation. As change occurs, we recognise that every individual across the organisation understands and feels a part of the change. Effective engagement creates transparency and public confidence in the modernization of Toronto Police.”

The purpose of this RFP is to select a qualified communications partner that can provide the services and technology required to host a series of meetings. These engagements, through virtual town hall meetings, will allow the TPS to connect with thousands of individuals simultaneously.

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.
