Origin

(January 7, 2015) Report from the General Manager, Parks, Forestry and Recreation, the Director, Purchasing and Materials Management, and the Director, Toronto Office of Partnerships

Summary

The Toronto Office of Partnerships ("TOP") received an unsolicited proposal in 2013 from a private company that has offered to establish and maintain, at no cost to the City, a full service video streaming solution to video stream live and on-demand hockey events from select City of Toronto ("City") arenas. The service involves the installation of fixed cameras in hockey arenas that are supported by both on-site and external servers with content distribution via the internet. The City will receive a percentage of revenue from subscription and advertising revenue generated by the program. This initiative, called GameOnStream ("GOS"), is independently financed by the proponent.

 

Following the initial review of the proposal by TOP with various stakeholders in the City, the Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division ("PFR"), after consultation with the City Clerk's Office regarding the City's privacy policy, deemed the initiative to have merit and indicated an interest in having the cameras installed in various arenas. Having also assessed the prospects of the proposal with relevant corporate staff, the purpose of this report is to request that Council approve the initiative in principle and that the proponent’s plan be subjected to the Swiss Challenge (a specialized Request For Proposal process) as mandated by the City’s Unsolicited Quotations or Proposal Policy.
