As it goes forward with its search for a new private management partner, the Illinois Lottery has posted a Request for Information (RFI) to launch a conversation with market participants and glean information from an industry perspective.
That request is the initial step in the process that will lead to a Request for Proposal and the hiring of a new private manager. The process must be followed as a matter of Illinois Lottery Law.
With the RFP, the Illinois Lottery will search for a private partner to focus on making the lottery profitable as well as to make sure all of the state's laws and administrative rules are followed.
All responses to the RFI, which can come from experienced lottery managers, advertising and marketing experts, operators and vendors, or any consortium that can serve to the Lottery’s need, will be considered and are due by Oct. 28. The RFI is accessible online at www.illinoislottery.com.
