It will be rebid

Scientific Games provides update on Illinois Gaming Board contract

(US).- Scientific Games International had been awarded last month the contract for the design, implementation and administration of the Video Gaming Central Control System by the Illinois Gaming Board (IGB). Now, IGB has terminated Scientific Games' contract and committed to promptly rebid the contract.

F

ollowing a protest by an unsuccessful bidder for the contract, the IGB informed Scientific Games that in evaluating the price portion of the contract proposals, it made miscalculations, due, in part, to the fact that the bid instructions resulted in both the IGB and applicants making assumptions that were not uniform. Based upon these factors, the IGB took the decision to terminate the contract.
 
"We are disappointed by the decision of the Illinois Gaming Board; however we are confident going into the expedited rebid process," commented Michael Chambrello, President and CEO of Scientific Games.

"We continue to believe that we offer the highest quality, service and value to the State. Furthermore, as we were in the initial stages of the implementation process, we are best positioned to promptly implement this important initiative and begin generating funds for the crucial capital construction that this program is to fund," Chambrello added.
