Who Will be Awarded New Boledo Contract?

The Belize Gaming Company took a serious hit last Sunday when the four-digit jackpot, and the winning single numbers, 2020, saw Belizeans from across the country claiming their prizes.  It was the biggest payout in the company’s history, despite nearing the end of its contract with government for the Sunday Lottery and Boledo Draw.  While there is an open tender for the upcoming contract, the Ministry of Investment, Trade and Commerce is overseeing the process.  Attorney General Michael Peyrefitte spoke briefly on how the course of action to determine who will be awarded the new contract is coming along.

“Cabinet had made it very clear that the matter would indeed, like you said, go to tender.  The Ministry of Investment, Trade and Commerce would be the ministry that would be spearheading it.  So I don’t know, you’d probably have to ask the minister how many people have applied or what interest has been expressed.  But to this date I am not aware, I am sure there would have been a deadline by when you could apply and then the minister would bring all those applications to Cabinet for a decision or whatever input we could give to the process.  But I am not aware of who all have applied and what the selection process will be, I don’t know.”
