There has been a strong push back from the runner up in the competition to redevelop LeBreton flats.
The NCC scored the Ottawa Senators backed bid higher than the Canderel/Devcore DLS group. Now Devcore has sent a letter raising serious concerns about the process. The group wants to see how the ncc scored the bids.
They also say the NCC appears to be favouring the senator's bid by allowing them to "improve" parts of their bid after the fact.
Devcore also writes that they are "perplexed" as to how the senator's group met "national" objectives set out by the NCC.
Today the NCC responded on twitters saying the process was fair:
(2/4) The entire process was monitored by the fairness monitors. They deemed the process to be fair, impartial and transparent. #ottnews— NCC-CCN (@NCC_CCN) May 4, 2016
(3/4) We understand the disappointment of DCDLS, but RendezVous LeBreton ranked highest. They obtained the right to negotiate 1st. #ottnews— NCC-CCN (@NCC_CCN) May 4, 2016
(4/4) The competitive process is ongoing. Should the NCC not reach agreement w/ highest ranked proponent, it can negotiate w/ 2nd highest.— NCC-CCN (@NCC_CCN) May 4, 2016
