The agents are busy preparing for internal machine audits which have begun. They are continuing to become familiar with the internal operation and capabilities of the new database as they have begun processing information from the “Tablets” for reporting, as they work on the casino floor.  A new server based system is being reviewed, as it did not pass inspection the system installation has been placed on hold.


The IT Agent continues to make sure the QTGA systems are up and operating properly.  We have obtained a new technical line to enhance the service at Quapaw Casino.  He maintains all QTGA systems for all electronic and communication requirements.


We have made some changes in internal auditing for the QTGA.  As separation of job duties between casinos, in other departments, have been so successful we are transitioning our Internal Auditing Department the same.
