CLASS A VENDOR LICENSING PROCESS

 

OVERVIEW

Obtaining a Class A Tribal Vendor License from the Fort McDowell Tribal Gaming Office and a Certification from the Arizona Department of Gaming will require some time and effort on the behalf of the applicant. A set of application forms must be completed for both regulatory agencies, licensing and certification fees must be paid, and certain key individuals within the company may undergo a comprehensive criminal and financial background investigation.  The reward for completing this process is the right to join a select group of vendors which can supply goods and services to the Fort McDowell Gaming Center in amounts over $10,000 per month.

 

Note: The Tribal Gaming Office issues Licenses, but has no operational role in the purchasing process. The granting of a License by the Tribal Gaming Office does not constitute a guarantee of business with the Fort McDowell Gaming Center.

 

CLASS A TRIBAL VENDOR LICENSE FEES

The licensing fees are listed on the fee schedule and are good for a two-year period. The license fees are subject to change without notice by the Fort McDowell Tribal Gaming Office. Licensing fees are not refundable.
If you wish to learn more regarding tribal vendor licensing process, please call the Tribal Gaming Office at 480.789.4792, between 7AM and 3PM Arizona time. The Tribal Gaming Office is open Monday through Thursday except holidays.  

 

Arizona Department of Gaming Certification fees are set depending on the type of goods or services provided, with gaming-related vendors paying higher fees. (Please contact the Arizona Department of Gaming for additional information.)  

 

LICENSE SUITABILITY DETERMINATIONS

Tribal, State and Federal requirements govern the suitability criteria for vendor licensing. If you have a particular question about the suitability determination process, please call 480.789.4792.

 

No suitability determination will be made until the appropriate licensing fees have been paid. The burden of proving suitability rests with the applicant. 

 

VENDOR GIFT POLICY

All vendors are required to read, understand, and comply with the Fort McDowell Gaming Center Gift Policy.

 

Complying with the FMGC Gift Policy

The new Gift Policy can basically be summed up in two sentences:

  1. The Gift Policy requires every vendor to report any gift(s) given to employees of the Gaming Center that total more than $100 in a single month.

  2. The Gift Policy requires every vendor to receive approval from the Tribal Gaming Office before giving a gift(s) valued at $100 or more.

Vendors that make good-faith efforts to report the gifts they give to employees will have no problems complying with the Gift Policy.
