The Louisiana Lottery Corporation (LLC) achieved verification for two distinct lottery industry Quality Assurance (QA) best practices under the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) Standards Initiative (NSI) Verification Program. The Louisiana Lottery becomes the first lottery to renew the industry's Quality Assurance Best Practice.

"In 2006 the Louisiana Lottery Corporation demonstrated its commitment to efficiency through an investment in Quality Assurance," said NASPL Executive Director David Gale.  "The LLC continues a leadership role it defined by becoming the first lottery in North America to renew its Q/A Verification."

The Quality Assurance best practices are intended to provide lotteries and vendors with simple, documented and approved methods for building quality into the product development and testing processes. The two verifications provide an acknowledged set of quality assurance processes and procedures that will permit the Louisiana Lottery and its gaming system vendor(s) to follow an approved and repeatable method when defining, developing and accepting software products for installation at the lottery. 

"In fulfilling our mission of maximizing revenue for the state while upholding the highest level of public trust, the Lottery has not wavered from its core philosophies that have made it successful," said Louisiana Lottery President Rose Hudson.  "I'm extremely proud of our organization, this achievement is a testament to the people that work for it," she added.
