    IO is responsible for managing the government’s real estate portfolio, and we value our relationships with industry partners.  The VOR lists are applied to construction-related projects for properties that are:

    • Provincially-owned
    • Leased by or from the provincial government, or
    • Where the provincial government has an interest.

    The total value of these projects is approximately $250 million annually in construction and construction-related services. The renewed VOR and the Master Service Agreement between IO and its Project Management Service Providers (PMSPs) are being improved to include:

    • Simpler bidding documentation
    • Best practices in evaluation methodology
    • Increased flexibility to add new prequalified vendors.
