The primary mission of the National Indian Gaming Commission (the “Commission” or “NIGC”) is to work within the framework created by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (“IGRA”) for the regulation of gaming activities conducted by sovereign Indian nations and tribes on Indian lands, and to fully realize IGRA’s goals: (1) promoting tribal economic development, self-sufficiency, and strong tribal governments; (2) maintaining the integrity of the Indian gaming industry; and (3) ensuring that tribes are the primary beneficiaries of their gaming activities.
We are committed to the prompt and efficient regulation of the Indian gaming industry, which spans more than 499 gaming facilities, associated with 244 tribes across 28 states. The Commission’s dedication to compliance ensures the integrity of the $31.2 billion Indian gaming industry.
We recognize that the Commission's strength is derived from our staff. The NIGC "family" is a small, diverse, well-trained, and career-oriented team with the finest professionals in gaming. The Commission has approximately 120 highly motivated individuals working at our headquarters in Washington, D.C. and across seven administrative regional offices.
Periodically the NIGC has a need to fill vacancies in order to meet our regulatory responsibilities. Below is a listing of current vacancies.
