The Gemini Project is governed by the Gemini Board, which has members from each of the parties to the International Gemini Agreement. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has been designated the Executive Agency for Gemini, and the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) has been selected by the NSF as the Managing Organization for the Gemini Project. Each of the parties to the Gemini Agreement has a National Gemini Project Office responsible for liaison with their national astronomical community. AURA has established the International Gemini Project Office, located in Tucson, Arizona, USA, the Gemini Observatory Northern Operations Center, located in Hilo, Hawaii, USA, and the Gemini Observatory Southern Operations Center located in La Serena, Chile.

Gemini is headed by the Observatory Director, who is responsible for overall conduct of the Gemini Project.
