MTO extends deal with Aurigo to power road work contract management system
A new agreement between the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) and Aurigo Software will see the tech firm provide the province with contract management services for road work projects for an additional two years.
The extension to the MTO contract builds on half a decade of collaboration. The province has relied on Aurigo’s platform to power its web-based contract management service (WBCMS) — used to administer the ministry’s roughly $3 billion in construction, maintenance and operations contracts — since 2015. As part of the extended agreement, Aurigo said the MTO system will be upgraded to run Masterworks 2021, the latest edition of its software.
Around 1,000 users, from the MTO and their contractors, use the service for daily reporting of activities, contract payment requests, approvals, correspondence and other lifecycle management tasks.
In addition to being used by the MTO, Texas-headquartered Aurigo said it is also working with York Region, managing the region’s construction projects and its land acquisitions.
