Ind. Gov't. - "Lottery bids made public … but unreadable"

Great Oct. 17th story from Niki Kelly of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. Some quotes:

INDIANAPOLIS – Hoosier Lottery officials made public the two bids to take over key operations of the system.

But the nearly 1,700 pages of documents are so heavily redacted that Hoosiers still have no idea how the new manager plans to hit lofty revenue targets. The bids also weren’t placed online for citizens to read. They are only available in a downtown Indianapolis conference room.

And despite finalizing the 15-year contract with GTECH Indiana LLC on Friday – and sending out a news release about it – the lottery has yet to release that agreement. * * *

In comparison, when Indiana leased the Indiana Toll Road – a much more complex transaction – reams of non-redacted documents were posted on the state website for review and are still accessible today.
