"As you may know, New Jersey recently announced its intent to award the contract in response to a single bid to privatize sales and marketing of the New Jersey Lottery. The State's Request for Proposal (RFP) requires a $120 million upfront payment from the prospective private lottery manager at the outset of the contract. Some have alleged that this arrangement appears to fall short of the test for compliance with the Department's interpretation of the law. We ask you to provide guidance on the legality of this arrangement in order to avoid costly legal challenges should it be deemed unlawful in the future."
