OPPM Project Awarded the Silver Service Delivery Award

November 01, 2013

The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) has recognized the Ontario Provincial Police Modernization (OPPM) Project with its Silver Award for Infrastructure.  The awards are presented annually to showcase Canadian excellence and innovation in project financing, service delivery, infrastructure investment and/or generation of economic benefit, which result in enhanced quality of public services and facilities.  The OPPM Project bundled several facilities in 16 smaller and remote communities served by the Ontario Provincial Police.  It is the first to be financed by a long-term fully amortizing bank loan since the 2008 financial crisis, creating more competitive financing conditions for future AFP projects.  The $292.7 million project provided value for money of $51.3 million versus traditional delivery.  The 18 buildings are all designed to achieve Silver LEED certification. They provide more efficient and effective policing infrastructure, enhancing community safety and supporting Ontario's justice system.
