Representation attended the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association meeting. We are continuing to work on our daily procedures and guidance policies. The Director met again with several other gaming commissions/agencies and the State of Oklahoma on new compact audit requirements.


All gaming vendor invoicing remains completed for the annual renewal of all companies, requiring licensing for annual gaming vendor renewals and for vendors during the month of January 2015, and/or the calendar year. Vendor licensing is continuous with the annual renewals for all gaming and gaming related vendors doing business with both Downstream Casino Resort and Quapaw Casino. Ending with January we have a total of 472 licensed and/or registered vendors.

The Compliance staff at both casinos’ has been working diligently reviewing the upgrades/changes on all policies and procedures making sure all of the 543 regulations are inclusive. Both casinos have continuous upgrades and changes and corrections that are being made to enable the most popular electronic gaming machines to be on the floor. This will give the patrons a more excellent variety of machines to play. The Compliance Agents are continuing to work on the training information to assist in preparation of the training and/or procedural manuals for the QTGA, as time allows.


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.


The changes in internal auditing for the QTGA have proven to be successful. The separation of job duties between casinos has been so successful we have transitioned our Internal Auditing Department the same way.
