The Massachusetts Gaming Commission Issues Request for Response Seeking Services of Independent Monitor
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission announced today the opening of a competitive bidding process to procure the services of an independent monitor consistent with a condition of MGC’s Decision and Order pertaining to Wynn MA, LLC dated April 30, 2019.
The MGC seeks to retain an independent monitor of Wynn MA, LLC as the holder of the Category 1, Region A gaming license under G.L. c. 23K to mitigate the risk of a recurrence of the violations identified by the MGC’s recent written decision.
The primary focus of the independent monitor’s review and evaluation will be the Massachusetts licensee. The scope of the review will include the policies and organizational changes adopted by the Company as described during the recent adjudicatory hearing process. The Commission does not expect the monitor to substitute its judgment for that of the Company in these matters. Instead, the MGC is attempting to gain an understanding as to whether the approaches put in place by the Company are consistent with recognized best practices and are in fact effective. The independent monitor shall not review, evaluate, or otherwise assess gaming-related operations of the licensee, the Company or its subsidiaries or properties.
The independent monitor will be required to conduct a baseline assessment within six months of the commencement of its engagement, and then will report to the MGC no less than annually in accord with a mutually agreed upon schedule between the independent monitor and the MGC.
Companies seeking to respond to this RFR must have a proven track record of being able to accomplish the deliverables listed in the scope of services.
The RFR is available for review on COMMBUYS.
The deadline for bid responses is June 28, 2019. Only electronic quotes submitted via COMMBUYS will be accepted in response to this RFR.
