Family Service Toronto has awarded two contracts following separate competitive procurement processes this spring.
FST awarded an Internal Audit contract to KPMG LLP for its PassportONE project and selected Greenway Property Solutions Inc. for a one-year cleaning services contract at its new downtown office podium opening May 23.
The cleaning contract was awarded following a review of bids from three vendors through a public procurement process launched in March. That contract is effective May 1, 2018 and ends April 30, 2019 with an option for renewal.
The audit contract relates to FST’s new role as the consolidated payment agency (now called PassportONE) for the province-wide Passport program. FST won an expression of interest issued last year by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS) to be the provincial payment agency.
FST is developing its system and supporting processes as well as setting up the infrastructure to support this initiative. PassportONE will go live in phases starting in May 2018. KPMG LLP will be auditing the PassportONE processes, systems and data migration methodologies.
