The Texas Lottery Commission is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to invite qualified Proposers to submit proposals to enter into an agreement with the Texas Lottery for the performance of the Lottery’s Annual Financial Audit.

Only Proposers that are Texas State Board of Public Accountancy certified public accounting (CPA) firms or individuals will be considered.

Proposers shall provide the Texas Lottery with information, evidence and demonstrations that will permit awarding a contract in a manner that provides the best value to the Texas Lottery. Proposers must propose on all components and submit a single proposal for all services in response to this RFP.

To enhance auditor independence and objectivity, the Texas Lottery supports the common practice of rotation of lead audit partners in performance of audit services.

Proposers should refer to the Schedule of Events contained in the RFP for important filing deadlines. Proposals are due on January 26, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. Central Time. Prior to submitting a response to this RFP, Proposers are advised to re-check this posting for any possible additional information or amendments.

The Texas Lottery Commission is a part of the Executive Branch of Texas State Government. The Texas Lottery will not relinquish control over lottery operations. The Successful Proposer shall function under the supervision of the Texas Lottery. Its operations will be subject to the same scrutiny and oversight that would apply if all operations were performed by Texas Lottery employees. Accordingly, all operations must be conducted in adherence to applicable statutes and the highest ethical standards.

This RFP and all activities leading toward the execution of a written contract pursuant to this RFP are being conducted in accordance with the State Lottery Act (Tex. Gov't Code. §§ 466.001 et seq.), as amended; the Texas Lottery's administrative regulations (16 TAC §§ 401.101, et seq.); and other applicable laws of the State of Texas. All Proposers should read and be familiar with the State Lottery Act and 16 TAC §401.101.
