GC Lottery Update

Upon GCPBA's request, Steve Sullivan in the River Office was able to provide an explanation of the lottery situation, as follows below.


Hi Rich,

Thanks for asking. The lottery site should have been turned off while the lottery was being run and verified -- we did not think to do this until late on Tuesday. All information prior to Wednesday evening was premature. The results are being posted at this time Wednesday evening).

Why the delay? We wanted to verify the integrity of all three aspects to running this lottery. The first aspect included verifying that all applications were listed in a master table one time for each chance they had in the lottery. This step went off without a hitch. Second, we verified that the random reordering of the first list was done successfully. This, too, ran perfectly the first time, and the list was never rerun or changed. Third, we verified that each application was considered in the order listed, and that all five dates from each application were considered before moving to the next application. We
found a problem in the third step of this process which required additional programmer work before the third step could be completed

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Steve Sullivan
