Corbett administration officials are willing to appear before a Senate Finance Committee hearing on a proposal to hire a private company to manage the $3.5 billion Pennsylvania Lottery.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Tom Corbett's Department of Revenue said Thursday that officials are happy to answer questions in any format.

The hearing date was set for Jan. 14.

Monday is the deadline for the Corbett administration to decide on a British lottery operator's sole bid to manage the lottery system on a 20- to 30-year contract, but talks are under way to postpone that.

Camelot Global Services runs the national lottery in the United Kingdom and is a consultant to the California Lottery. Unionized state lottery employees plan to offer a competitive alternative, which is guaranteed in their contract.
