An RFQ can be either a "Request for Quote" or "Request for Qualifications", In the case of this stadium, TO2015 is doing a "Request for Qualifications". Simply put, they are only asking for companies to show interest in the project so they can pre-qualify them (i.e. check finances and similar project builds) to see if they are possibly capable of doing the job.

So, TO 2015 is still at the stage of designing what $150 million can buy - and agreeing with the previous poster, it will buy a lot more than an upgrade to Ivor Wynne (most people with construction experience would know that right from the beginning). While getting a pretty new full stadium is a positive thing, it's such a shame that decisions get forced using faulty information. Realistically, it will never be known the actual cost for any of the locations - it was all pie in the sky without any real plans. And yes, of course, Bob wins big time in this.
