Washington, DC January 8, 2009 — Today the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) released its five-year strategic plan, in accordance with the Government Performance Results Act (GPRA) of 1993. As requested by Congress the strategic plan sets out goals, objectives and an agency mission for Fiscal Years 2009 – 2014.

The strategic plan is the first step in compliance with GPRA. Next, the agency will prepare an annual performance plan and performance based budget, then the agency must publish an annual performance report.

Chairman Hogen said “This has been an exercise in good government and the NIGC is pleased to implement its strategic plan to guide the agency over the next several years. We are proud of the product and thank all that have provided input during the development of the plan.”

The plan is the result of input from NIGC staff and guidance from the Office of Management and Budget. Additionally, Tribal participation was essential during development of the strategic plan.
