Operational note: ITA Launch

27 October 2020

On 28 August, the Gambling Commission launched the competition to award the fourth National Lottery licence.

The launch was marked by the issuing of the Selection Questionnaire (SQ) to potential applicants.

The deadline for completion of the questionnaire was 2 October and we are encouraged by the number of applications received.

The Invitation to Apply (ITA) was issued to all applicants who successfully passed the SQ stage on 26 October.

This means that the competition has entered the ‘award stage’ and interested parties can begin preparing their detailed applications. They will have until July 2021 to complete their applications and we look forward to assessing these proposals as part of a competitive process.
