ARIZONA LOTTERY COMMISSIONERS UNANIMOUSLY ENDORSE DIRECTOR BOULE'S
November 29, 2015
The five-member Arizona State Lottery Commission (Commission) voted unanimously on Friday, November 20, to endorse Executive Director Tony Bouie’s agenda for operations of the $750 million state agency.

Director Bouie presented an agenda with three areas of focus: including transparency, social responsibility and government efficiency.

Efforts to impact these three priorities have already begun during the Director’s first nine months leading the agency. 

“The Arizona Lottery management team and I have taken a hard look at where to cut costs and how to grow sales,” said Bouie. “Under my direction, the Lottery team has already cut more than $710,000 in expenditures, with projected savings of more than $3.4 million for Fiscal Year 2016.”

After the first of the new year, the Arizona Lottery will outsource, through a request for proposal (RFP), the management of its 20-25 person sales force. This will reduce Lottery staff by 26 percent and decrease personnel costs by $2.5 million annually.
 
The Phoenix City Council recently approved a plan submitted by the Arizona Lottery to open a new sales location at Sky Harbor International Airport in 2016. This location is projected to quickly become the top Arizona Lottery sales location, bringing in an additional $2-$3 million in new revenue per year, with a large portion being from non-Arizona residents.
 
For the first time in the nearly 35-year history of the Lottery, all marketing subcontracting opportunities of more than $5,000 are now publicly posted on the Arizona Lottery website in an effort to support Arizona-based businesses. More than 90 percent of marketing spending, excluding billboards, is now spent in state, Bouie explained.
 
Further, the Lottery will no longer actively recruit retailers in low-income neighborhoods (LINs) and all billboards in LINs statewide will be removed or changed to the Lottery’s “Giving Back” campaign messaging. Retailers in LINs that approach the Lottery requesting a license will be licensed as normal, however.

Through the first quarter of this fiscal year, which began July 1, Arizona Lottery payouts to state programs are up 14 percent from the same time period in 2014. For the period of July 1 through September 30, gross sales were $182,387,033 with more than $39,360,000 being distributed to beneficiaries statewide.
