Concession contracts are awarded through a competitive process. After determining that a visitor service is necessary, appropriate, and feasible as a business opportunity, the National Park Service prepares a prospectus which outlines the requirements for operating the business. Interested businesses apply by submitting written proposals that respond to established criteria.
Submitting a Concession Contract Proposal
The opportunity to apply is only open when announced by a prospectus (a request for proposals) which describes the services, the terms and conditions under which they will be operated, and sets criteria for evaluating proposals submitted by private sector companies.Opportunities to apply for concession contracts are announced in Federal Business Opportunities. Click on the link, select "Advanced Search" and use the form to establish your search criteria.
