Update: Key Terms for Lottery PMA Bidders Released by Pennsylvania Governor's Administration

Following discussions with bidders on ideas for the Pennsylvania Lottery profits boost, which may involve an online lottery offering in the future, Governor Tom Corbett's administration released key terms for a potential Private Management Agreement (PMA) for the lottery.

The key terms establish that the ownership and control of the Lottery will remain with the State of Pennsylvania, but that the management of the lottery is under review so the successful bidder will be in charge of providing annual profit commitments for the next twenty years. The profits, it was specified, would be used for funding of the state's programs for the elderly.

Apart from the request that the successful bidder, or private manager, would need $150 million up-front cash collateral to operate under the twenty-year agreement, the key terms also include provisions that this period may be extended for another ten years based on performance, envisage private manager compensation, personnel plans and employee transition strategy and implementation of industry best practices for responsible sales growth including monitor-based games and Internet products.

At the moment, the governor's administration is looking into bidders' business plans, trying to make a final decision on whether to enter into a PMA.

According to Revenue Secretary Dan Meuser, "First we had to understand and decide upon exactly what we'd require and expect from a private manager, and now that we have that basis, we can start to evaluate how qualified bidders react to the proposal and plan to improve Lottery operations.

"This is a careful, iterative process where each decision impacts the next step, and there are a number of 'next steps' to consider in coming weeks, including contractually mandated dialogue with the union representing Lottery employees, before we can determine if a PMA is in the best interest of the Lottery and the seniors who benefit from Lottery-funded programs and services."
