Supplies Year 2000 Compliance Statement
Due to the many requests for Y2K compliance statements we
have posted the following information. This data will be
kept up to date during every phase of our Year 2000 compliance
Paul-Son Gaming Supplies is pleased to report that
we are well underway with our Year 2000 compliance efforts.
What follows is a brief description and status report of our
Paul-Son Gaming Supplies Year 2000 Compliance
Every Company in every industry is facing the highly publicized
challenge of ensuring that its business systems will continue to
operate as intended on January 1, 2000 and beyond. To address
this issue, Paul-son Gaming Supplies has formed a Year 2000
Compliance Progam. The Paul-Son Year 2000 Program mission is
to transition Paul-Son applications, computing infrastructure,
facilities, and business functionality successfully into the new
millennium. The Program is composed of four areas: Assessment,
Renovation, Testing, Customer / Supplier Compliance. The Year
2000 Program has the following objectives: 1) To ensure all internal
computer systems will function correctly in the year 2000; 2) To
ensure data exchanged with external organizations (service bureaus,
information providers) conforms to Year 2000 standards; and 3) To
fulfill Paul-Son's regulatory responsibilities.
The fundamental strategy for Paul-Son's Year 2000 program is
decentralized business line execution with centralized oversight
and reporting. Essential to this strategy are formal policies and
procedures; reporting and communications mechanisms; participation
of senior management; and affective governance provided by the Year
2000 Program Manager.
The Year 2000 Core Team has developed an inventory of all Paul-Son
systems and assesssed the business priority of each system. These
systems were classified by mission criticality and a determination
was made to either replace, remediate, or recertify the system
depending on importance. The Team established policies and
procedures for detailed tracking and analysis of each business
system's remediation, replacement, or re-certification progress.
During 1998 and 1999, the Program focus will be remediation and
testing of internal systems; external and industry-wide testing;
contingency planning; and specific communications programs for
internal and external constituents. Significant efforts will be
directed toward developing and implementing a rigorous Customer /
Supplier Compliance Program. This Program is designed to include
a strong education and awareness campaign and assessments and/or
reports of Customer / Supplier Year 2000 readiness.
Thank you for your concern regarding our Year 2000 issues.
Successful identification of equipment and systems with
possible compliance issues has been completed at all locations
throughout the US. This operation was completed within the time

worst to minor case scenarios.
||Customer / Supplier Compliance
We have acquired a large collection of our suppliers Y2K statements
and are evaluating their programs and actions toward Year 2000
compliance. We have received very positive results working with
our suppliers and service providers, discovering that many are
already in the final stages of their own compliance programs. We
will be sending copies of our program overview to many of our
customers in the next few months, and to those who took the time
to send a request, we are responding as fast as we can.
The MIS Department here at Paul-Son has done extensive research
into Y2K issues and is confident that the measures we are taking
are satisfactory and in many ways go far beyond tolerable
procedures. This is a top priority at Paul-Son Gaming and we
intend to do everything we can to eliminate any doubt of
Again thank you for your concern regarding our Year 2000 issues.
