Evaluation of Projects

Within the 120 business days following the presentation of bids hearing, the Superintendence must carry out the evaluation process of the technical bids, through the application of a methodology constituted in the Terms of Tendering. 

Along with compliance of the legal requirements, regulations, and a review of the origin and sufficiency of funding, the applying entities will be subject to an evaluation of various criteria and factors established by law, applying the assessment that each meets the Regulation for the Process of Granting Casino Operating Permits.

Within this stage, reports must be sent out by the Ministry of the Interior, the National Tourism Service (Sernatur), and the municipalities where the operation is to be located, in addition to the attributes of the integrated project and its plan of operation. To this end, Superintendent must form a Technical Evaluation Committee within the Institution.

It must be considered that current casino operators will not have priority in the evaluation of bids, rather a preferential right to obtain the license permit when having matched the financial bid of another applicant, should the had received a higher weighted score in the technical evaluation stage. However, as businesses already operating casinos and having Superintendence authorization, there are some differences in the background review and evaluation mechanism requirements, among others, that will evaluate their 15 years of operation.
