A Follow-Up Review of the Organization, Operation and Performance of the California State Lottery

Report #98, December 1989


A follow-up to the Commission’s January 1987 report, this review notes that, in general, the Lottery has matured well since voters approved its creation in 1984. However, the Commission continues to find fault with budgetary oversight and the monitoring of contracts. This report contains four findings and four recommendations regarding legislative review, research and development procedures, methods of evaluating advertising efforts and contract monitoring procedures.
