The NPS complies with the requirements of the NPS Concessions Management Improvement Act of 1998 and its applicable regulations when developing concessions contracts for providing commercial visitor services in units of the National Park System. Approximately 18 months before the current contract expires, we plan to issue a prospectus soliciting proposals for the new concessions contract.
* indicates the current step in the planning process
Step 1. Conduct external scoping
Step 2. Analysis of public comment
As part of this process, the National Park Service asks for your input. Broad public participation will help us understand how best to meet current and changing visitor needs and expectations by giving us a better understanding of our visitors and their anticipated experiences, preferences, and needs. It also will help us identify existing or new opportunities to meet those needs while achieving our mission to preserve and protect resources. .
