The National Park Service (NPS) has issued a prospectus soliciting proposals for the award of three (3) concession contracts for guided interpretive backcountry vehicle tours within Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.

The prospectus explains both the business opportunities and terms and conditions under which the NPS will award the new concession contracts. Pursuant to 36 CFR, Part 51, the NPS Director has determined these new contracts to be qualified, and that existing concessioners for current contracts CC-CANY022-04 and CC-CANY-25-04 have Preferred Offeror status for the new contracts. However, the Director has also determined that the existing concessioner for concession contract CC-CANY-24-04 is not a Preferred Offeror.

All proposals, including those of existing concessioners, must be sent to the Chief of Concessions, Intermountain Region, National Park Service, 12795 West Alameda Parkway, Lakewood, Colorado 80228 and be received by 4:00 p.m. MST, Tuesday July 2, 2013.

The prospectus, as well as information about how to obtain a copy, is available on line at .http://www.nps.gov/commercialservices/cany0XX-14.htm

Persons who obtain the prospectus on line are asked to call Ms. Parker at (303) 969-2661 or send her an email at e-mail us with their contact information to receive updates.
